Bayer Leverkusen striker Stefan Kiessling scored one of the most bizarre "goals" of recent times during tonight's Bundesliga clash against Hoffenheim.
The 29-year-old appeared to convert a Gonzalo Castro corner with a near-post header, but replays showed that the ball had in fact gone wide.
Remarkably, the ball eventually ended up in the back of the net because of a hole in the side-netting.
The match officials presumed the ball had gone in and subsequently awarded the goal to the visiting side, who eventually won the match 2-1.
To add further insult to injury for Hoffenheim, Kiessling's goal proved decisive.
Roberto Firmino missed a penalty for the home side with seven minutes remaining, while Sven Schipplock's late header turned out to be little more than a consolation.
