Cristiano Ronaldo goal vs Villarreal possibly should’ve been disallowed for offside

Posted by

Cristiano Ronaldo sent Old Trafford wild with his stoppage time goal for Manchester United against Villarreal, but should the goal have counted?

The Portugal international didn’t do anything wrong with his movement in the box and his finish, but it looked like Jesse Lingard was in an offside position when Ronaldo took his effort at goal.

Take a look below as Lingard is not only in an offside position, but possibly obstructing the Villarreal goalkeeper as well, meaning there’s no argument about whether or not he was interfering with play…

This looks like another very lucky moment for Man Utd as they snatched an unlikely victory in a game Villarreal largely dominated.

  1. I’m not surprised, THE REFEREES OF THIS WORLD HAVE ALWAYS GIVEN THEIR BLESSINGS TO UTD. Otherwise, they would never have won all they have. However, they will be trophy less again, even with referee helps.

    1. And who do you support? You muppet, you clearly no nothing about football if you’re trying to claim that the referee helps United to victories! This goal got checked via VAR as well so you can stick you ridiculous comment up your Arse.

  2. No, Lingard was right at the keeper’s feet. How on earth could that obstruct the view of a 6′ 2″ man? The keeper clearly could see the ball that’s why he even got his hand out to catch it but it still went in nonetheless. Sorry.

  3. Yes but when you look at it closely also Lingard before he gives the ball to Christianal Ronaldo he is Sandwiched between two oppents who put him down what you end up calling an offside.
    In my opinion I think even if Christianal had not scored the referee would called it back for penalty upon the talks on Lingard. But as I said in my opinion the referee gave an advantage which worked watch the video closely on that build up in that goal.
