Let’s count up the teams that will be highly unpleased about this blown call: D.C. United, for darn sure, plus Houston and perhaps even Chicago and New York. Yep, that’s about it.
Milovan Mirosevic scored a goal that may help decide the Eastern Conference playoff chase, the late game-winner in a 3-2 Columbus win over Philadelphia at Crew Stadium. Columbus is battling D.C. United and perhaps the others as five sides scrap for four available playoff spots (after Sporting Kansas City).
Mirosevic was absolutely offside, by a full yard, as an attempted clearance bounces off a teammate and right to his fortunate feet.
It’s a bang-bang sequence, for sure, and it’s not always easy to get these right. But is that (“It’s not always easy to get these right.”) what they’ll be telling some team that missing the playoffs by a point, if it comes down to Columbus collecting two extra points off this one?
Here’s the goal. You’ll hear more about it, I’m sure.
