Japanese Soccer Team Scores Goal Due To Referee Falling Over

Japanese soccer team Mito Hollyhock scored an easy goal against Sagan Tosu with some help from the referee.

With the ball in play in the Sagan end, the ref tripped and fell over. Sagan’s players stopped running and turned their attention to the fallen official, but Mito’s Kim Tae-yeon was unconcerned and put the ball into the net.

Since the whistle hadn’t blown, the goal counted. Of course, it’s hard to be concerned with blowing a whistle when you’re tripping and falling down. This outcome should convince everyone to never care about the safety of referees ever again.
