German Player Wasn't Even On The Pitch When He Conceded Penalty In Bundesliga 2 Game

German Player Wasn't Even On The Pitch When He Conceded Penalty In Bundesliga 2 Game

German second division side Holstein Kiel were involved in one of the most bizarre penalty decisions of all time when they hosted VfL Bochum on Friday night.

In the first half of yesterday's clash at the Holstein-Stadion, with the home side leading 1-0, Bochum striker Silvere Ganvoula M'boussy squandered a decent chance inside the penalty area.

But as the ball sailed past the far post, Holstein Kiel substitute Michael Eberwein prevented the ball from going harmlessly out of play.

To the surprise of everyone in the stadium, the referee, clearly unhappy with Eberwein's decision to interfere in play, decided to consult VAR about the incident.

He soon handed the 23-year-old sub a yellow card for stopping the ball going out of play and seconds later, pointed to the penalty spot in a quite remarkable sequence of events.

Ganvoula M'boussy made up for his previous mistake to make it 1-1 from the spot.
