How unlucky can you get? Just ask Lyon's Yoann Gourcuff as he managed to score a 50-yard volley last night, only to hear the ref's whistle being blown for a foul.
Lyon managed to edge out 1-0 victory over Real Betis last night but if they had not beaten their Spanish counterparts there would have been uproar.
The french midfielder had the audacity to pull on a ball that sat up nicely just inside his opponents' half and score a contender for goal of the season. However, to Gourcuff's disgust, the ref had blown up for an incident with Bafetimbi Gomis just moments earlier.
Hard lucky Yoann but well worth a go.
