Gol fantasma de Alem

¿Entró o no entró?

Maximiliano Maciel's header gave the visitors a 1-0 win, but there is significant doubt over which side the post the ball passed on its way to goal!

Did it go in, or slip wide? We may never know for certain if Leandro N. Alem's winner against Atlas actually entered or not!

The General Rodriguez team, who play in Argentina's regionalised fifth-tier Primera D Metropolitana, took the lead through Maximiliano Maciel's header and held on for a 1-0 victory away from home. 

But the Atlas players were incensed, and with good reason, as they argued the ball ended up well wide of the post. 

The lack of a net at Atlas' stadium complicated matters, but the goal nevertheless stood, sending Alem joint-top of the Primera D. 

We've watched this video dozens of times, and we still cannot decide if it's a goal or not - what do you think?
