A collection of the best Jonathan Pearce jokes after goal-line technology replays for a France goal against Honduras severely confused the BBC commentator at Brazil 2014.

PLUS! BREAKING: Jonathan Pearce goal-line technology confusion confuses millions

A 3-0 win for the French saw a 48th minute own-goal by Honduras goalkeeper Noel Valladares.

The ball hit the post on one side of the goal before going in off the keeper on the other side.

The goal-line technology replays showed no goal for the initial shot that hit the woodwork, but then ruled it was a goal after Valladares’ intervention.

Viewers quickly understood the situation but Pearce got himself into a bit of a muddle, labelling the incident a “controversy”.
