Jobe Bellingham has goal ruled out after one of the worst offside calls in history

Jobe Bellingham has goal ruled out after one of the worst offside calls in history

Jobe Bellingham had the ball in the net for Sunderland but it was wrongly ruled out for offside.

Sunderland star Jobe Bellingham had a goal ruled out after one of the worst offside decisions in recent history.

Jobe, brother of Real Madrid star and 2023 Golden Boy winner Jude, had the ball in net against West Brom in the early kick-off.

Alex Palmer could not hold on to the shot from Adil Aouchiche inside the area and Bellingham reacted quickest to stab home what he thought was the opener.

However, the linesman put his flag up and deemed Bellingham to have strayed offside when the shot was made.

It was actually Patrick Roberts who was in an offside position and he did not interfere whatsoever.

Replays showed that Bellingham was clearly played onside by Cedric Kipre, who was a couple of yards behind him.

But because there is no VAR in the Championship, the on-field decision had to stick.

As expected, fans fumed over the poor call.

One wrote: "Robbed. Another week, another shocking call."

A second commented: "Worst part about it is that he never really looks offside ever, it’s a stinker."

A third said: "Honestly what is the point of even having officials anymore."

Another user added: "There's two green shirts between the lino and Bellingham. How can he possibly claim to have seen him behind them?"

A fifth weighed in: "Wild that this league has no VAR."

Bellingham joined Sunderland from boyhood club Birmingham City in the summer and has scored three times in all competitions.

He's already reportedly attracted interest from Spurs and Borussia Dortmund, his elder sibling's former club.

But the 18-year-old is all about carving his own path and that's why he has his first name on the back of his shirt, instead of his surname.

"I think he’s trying to create his own identity," former manager Tony Mowbray said.

"He doesn’t want to live off the back of his brother’s name; he wants to be the footballer that he is and show people what he can do."
