first_imgCrazy penalty decision in the Chelsea U19 vs Valencia U19 game. No goal pic.twitter.com/xUK6nOoupN— Footy Planet (@Footy_Planet) February 23, 2016 Valencia announced on Tuesday evening they would be appealing to UEFA about the disallowed goal. A club statement on www.valenciacf.com read: “Valencia wish to inform all our fans that the club will present a written protest in relation to the refereeing decision to disallow a goal for our team in the penalty shoot-out of the UEFA Youth League game against Chelsea. We trust that UEFA will give an appropriate response at the level required by the situation, after it has had the opportunity to analyse our appeal.” The statement added: “Finally, Valencia wish to thank the sportsmanship of Chelsea for having recognised that the disallowed penalty had gone in.” 1 Reigning UEFA Youth League champions Chelsea made it through to the quarter finals of this year’s tournament due to an almost unbelievable refereeing mistake during their round-of-16 tie against Valencia.The game had ended 1-1 and, due to competition rules, went straight to a penalty shootout in which the bizarre incident occured.In the end Chelsea won the shootout 5-3, however Valencia were left displeased after their second penalty – taken by 18-year-old Alberto Gil – was disallowed despite clearly having crossed the line.The ball hit an extra piece of framing on the inside of the goal, as you can see for yourselves in the video below, leaving the Spanish side furious.center_img Valencia starlet Alberto Gil’s penalty hits the inside framing of the goal last_img
