FOOTY fans were left stunned as Napoli had a goal ruled out against Liverpoolâ¦ for an offside EAR.
Jurgen Kloppâs side returned to winning ways as they beat the Italians 2-0 in the Champions League last night.
It was Napoliâs first defeat in all competitions this season.
But things could have panned out differently had Leo Ostigardâs offside opener been allowed to stand.
The former Brighton centre-back headed home for Napoli in the 53rd minute after getting on the end of a cross from Khvicha Kvaratshkelia.
It sparked wild celebrations from the Italians and their away supporters.
But VAR quickly interjected using new semi-automated X-Ray technology.
High-tech 3D replay pictures revealed Ostigardâs right EAR had been offside when the ball was whipped in.
And using the new gadget, the goal was swiftly disallowed by VAR before Liverpool struck twice at the death for victory.
Supporters will have to get used to seeing the images everywhere shortly.
Thatâs because Fifa are using the computer-generated offside calls at this monthâs World Cup in Qatar.
But some fans were left unamused by yesterdayâs call at Anfield.
One said: âAs a casual fan I feel like offside should be visible with the naked eye.â
Another noted: âIf you have to measure it with this amount of detail it should not be offside.â
One laughed: âHis ear? EAR? Wtf?â
Another added: âGameâs a joke. What is that?â
