‘It’s an absolute shocker from the officials!’ Jermaine Jenas bemoans dreadful decision to chalk off Davinson Sanchez’s goal against PSV for offside
- Tottenham had a valid goal by Davinson Sanchez at PSV ruled out for offside
- The Colombian thought he had equalised before the referee chalked it off
- Harry Kane was stood in an offside position but had no involvement in the play
- BT Sport pundit Jermaine Jenas described the decision as an ‘absolute shocker’
Tottenham were left seriously aggrieved having had a first half equaliser chalked off due to offside – a decision pundit Jermaine Jenas described as an ‘absolute shocker’.
Hirving Lozano gave PSV an early lead but Tottenham defender Davinson Sanchez rifled into the bottom corner soon after and he wheeled off in celebration.
But the linesman quickly raised his flag citing Harry Kane in an offside positon but with the Englishman not involved in the piece of play, Mauricio Pochettino and his bench were left dumbfounded at the dreadful decision.
Davinson Sanchez thought he had equalised for Tottenham in the first half away at PSV
But the linesman flagged with Harry Kane in an offside position, despite him not being involved
BT Sport pundit Jermaine Jenas described the decision as an ‘absolute shocker’ at half-time
‘It’s an absolute shocker from the officials!’ Jenas began.
‘I can’t see any reason why the linesman has his flag up there. As Davidson Sanchez scores, the only thing I can think of is he thinks Harry Kane is in an offside position.
‘But he’s not in the line of the ball he is behind the goalkeeper. It goes nowhere near Harry Kane, it’s a shocker!
‘There are certain things you can go, ‘well, it’s tight’, but with that many officials, you can’t be getting those wrong.’
Tottenham channeled the disappointment of the offside goal as they equalised through Lucas
Kane then found himself involved but this time it was given as he made it 2-1 before the hour
Pochettino’s side made the trip to Eindhoven knowing anything less than three points would all but extinguish hopes of reaching the knockout stages of this season’s Champions League.
Defeats against Inter Milan and Barcelona meant they were pointless, like their Dutch hosts, and the decision to chalk of the goal could have had catastrophic consequences.
In the end it galvanised the north London side as they channeled that disappointment to level before the break through Lucas Moura, who netted his first Champions League goal for the club.
Kane then had another big say as he made it 2-1 just before the hour mark as the Premier League side’s class eventually shone through.
