Video: Wrexham 'Ghost Goal' Goes Through Net, Is Later Awarded

In the midst of the international break, the fact that lower league sides continue to lock horns is lost on many.

But Wrexham brought the Skrill Premier Conference into the limelight this weekend—perhaps for the wrong reasons—as Adrian Cieslewicz scored what is widely being referred to as a "ghost goal."

After a mix-up at the back, Cieslewicz tore through on goal down the right side and fired what appeared to be a strike wide of the post.

But he and his forward colleague immediately began celebrating, claiming that the ball had slipped through a hole in the corner of the net.

After six minutes of discussions, the goal was awarded. Wrexham would go on to lose the game 3-1.
