VIDEO: Ludogorets player celebrates scoring by kissing girlfriend but goal is disallowed

Wanderson thought he's broken the deadlock against Slavia Sofia, oblivious to the referee's decision.



Ludogorets Razgrad’s Wanderson was still celebrating his goal against Slavia Sofia while it was disallowed by the referee and play continued on the pitch.

Table-toppers Ludogorets played out a 0-0 draw with Slavia Sofia in the Bulgarian First League at Ludogorets Arena in Razgrad on Sunday.


Facing ten men after Sofia’s goalkeeper Antonis Stergiakis was dismissed shortly before half-time, the hosts thought they’d made a breakthrough when Wanderson Cristaldo Farias found the net.

The midfielder was delighted and embarked on a wild celebration that culminated in his girlfriend running down the steps of one of the stands to greet him with a kiss.


However, with the goalscorer still preoccupied off the pitch, the officials disallowed the goal for offside – though replays reportedly showed that this was not the case.

43-year-old substitute goalkeeper Georgi Petkov, who also found himself carded, got the game going again with a free kick while Wanderson was still in the throws of his embrace.
