Incredible goals take fair play to the next level

Incredible goals take fair play to the next level

Two weird goals from each side settled an English League One match between  Doncaster Rovers and Bury on Saturday.

The match was destined for a 0-0 draw until an injury forced stoppage.

In an attempt to give back the ball to the Bury keeper from a throw, Harry Forester’s lobbed past the goalie and despite apologizing to the opposition, the referee ruled the goal would stand.

To ensure fair play prevailed, Doncaster manager Paul Dickov instructed his players to allow Bury's Leon Clarke score from the restart without being challenged. Clarke easily walked with the ball to the net and only the keeper pretended to tackle him

The match ended in a 1-1 draw but of utmost importance was the manner in which both sides embraced the spirit of fair play.

Would this have happened in a Kenyan derby between AFC Leopards and Gor Mahia?
