World Cup 2010, Italy Vs. Slovakia: Fabio Quagliarella Strike Saved Off Line May Have Been A Goal

A 67th minute strike from Fabio Quagliarella, playing on the left of attack since coming on at halftime, appeared to be saved off the line by Slovak central defender Martin Skrtel, but replays, while inconclusive, showed the ball may have crossed the line before being put out by the defender.

Quagliarella’s right footed half volley was blocked by Skrtel, standing on the line in the middle of goal. The block, however, came with Skrtel’s right leg, which appeared to be one foot behind the line.

Replay views were obstructed by the cross bar, unable to tell when or if the entire width of the ball crossed the line.
