West Brom defender pulls off the 'Hand of God' and somehow got away with it

West Brom defender pulls off the 'Hand of God' and somehow got away with it

Cedric Kipre tipped the ball over the bar with his HAND.

West Brom's Cedric Kipre pulled off the 'Hand of God' in his side's draw with Queens Park Rangers on Wednesday.

The points were shared at Loftus Road as QPR and West Brom played out a 2-2 draw in their Championship clash.

Sam Field opened the scoring for the hosts, with Michael Johnston levelling proceedings. Grady Diangana put the visitors ahead before the game's huge talking point.

With QPR on the attack, a ball was played into the box which was met with a towering header from Field.

His header, though, was denied when Kipre somehow cleared the ball over the bar.

On replay, however, Kipre performed the 'Hand of God' to stop the ball from hitting the net.

It appears players thought West Brom goalkeeper Alex Palmer pulled off a save as no one appealed for a penalty.

But Palmer immediately acknowledged his teammate's effort.

QPR eventually equalised in the 81st minute following Field's second goal of the match.

After the match, Rs boss Marti Cifuentes said he thought Palmer had made an amazing save to prevent his team from scoring.

"I've been told that West Brom played with two keepers for a while," he said.

"I'm not here to complain. I'm here to make sure my team is better, so if we need to play against two keepers then we need to practice playing against two keepers.

"Football is a game with mistakes and unfortunately refs can make mistakes as well. They have a very difficult job - the second most difficult job, after being a manager.

"On the pitch I thought their keeper made an amazing save - I mean the real keeper. That shows you how difficult the referee's job is. I was shown it (on video) afterwards."

Baggies manager Carlos Corberan added: "I didn't see the Kipre moment - hopefully the decision of the referee has been the fair one because that's what I want."
