Hadjuk Split Score Bizarre 'Ghost' Goal After 'Optical Illusion' Confuses Opposition

Croatian first division side Hadjuk Split were handed a massive slice of luck in their Prva Liga game against Slaven Belupo when an "optical illusion" helped them secure a 2-0 victory.

Željko Kopić's side were 1-0 up against their opponents on Saturday afternoon thanks to a 14th minute strike from Brazilian forward Jairo de Macedo da Silva.

But the game was put to bed with just 15 minutes remaining after a bizarre set of circumstances left viewers baffled.

In the 73rd minute, Belupo looked set to equalise when one of their players spotted the goalkeeper off his line.

In fact, half the team celebrated the so called 'ghost goal' as the away side appeared to have found a way back in the fixture.

But to the surprise of many, the ball had actually bounced off the post, and the optical illusion of the goalkeeper diving into the net - making it bulge in the process - made them think they had scored.

Belupol's goalkeeper ran towards the bench in celebration but little did he know that Hadjuk Split were creating a counter attack opportunity from their lapse in concentration.

Despite doing his utmost best to run back and save Josip Juranovic's effort, the 24-year-old full-back netted with ease to make it 2-0.

Split went onto secure all three points to go two points clear at the top of the HNL table, but this truly outrageous moment was the big talking point.
