On a night full of drama, it was Real Madrid who came away victors in the Champions League Final in Kiev winning 3-1. In a match that saw 4 second half goals, one of which was a stunner from Gareth Bale and two that were abysmal mistakes from German goalkeeper Loris Karius.
The first blunder in the 51st minute shows an utterly bizarre decision by the 24-year-old German Stopper as he urgently tried to get the ball forward after an easy save from a lofted ball by Toni Kroos aimed towards French forward Karim Benzema. As he literally handed the first goal to the Spanish side.
Oh my word!
A disaster for Loris Karius!

But it was an unlikely figure in Daniel Sturridge causing a stir on Twitter. Shortly after the incident, the West Brom loanee Tweeted:
Robbery mate!!! That’s not supposed to stand that!!

Well, in fact, the goal is supposed to stand. As the ruling is not an obstruction (which is what we assume Sturridge is appealing). Sturridge will, of course, be frustrated after seeing a cheap goal like that against his parent club. But we feel he is clutching at straws here and the whole of Twitter let him know it too.
Someone doesnt know the rules

How can a premier league player who’s also a striker not know that rule exits? delete your tweet pal and look up the rules.

don’t even know the rules to your own sport

Ridiculous. Keeper had released it, so nothing wrong with it.

It’s baffling that so many professional footballers don’t actually know the rules or laws of the game

If we’re honest, we’d take Mark’s advice!
