Germany Vs. Greece, Euro 2012: Early German Goal Disallowed

The Germans have already put the ball in Michail Sifakis' net, but it's not going to count, because the flag is up for offside. Sami Khedira drove at the defence, opting to take a long shot rather than play the ball out wide, and Sifakis could only spill his low effort at the feet of a pair of German players. He's brave in his attempt to recover, but ends up clattered by a combination of Andre Schurrle and Bastian Schweinsteiger, with the ball ending up in the net. Schurrle was slightly offside when Ozil shot, so the goal had to be called back.

At the other end of the pitch, Greece have an attack! Granted, it's just a speculative long shot from Grigoris Makos which causes Manuel Neuer absolutely no problems whatsoever, but imagine if that had gone in! Then Greece would only end up losing 3-1.
