Good sport admits handball goal

MOST COMMENTED

[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] Florian Trinks of German second division Greuther Fuerth propelled the ball into Sandhausen's goal with his hand -- and admitted so to the ref who missed it.

While Sandhausen players protested the ref's goal call, Trinks came clean and the goal was nullified, keeping the score at 1-1.

It would have been the 21-year-old midfielder's first goal of season -- but that came later in the game as he struck legitimately in his team's 3-1 win.



The incident recalled German forward Miroslav Klose's admission to a handball goal during a 2012 Lazio-Napoli game.
