Mario Balotelli had a brilliant disallowed scissor-kick goal against Cagliari

Dirty Tackle

Mario Balotelli had his third goal in two matches for Milan to salvage a 1-1 draw against Cagliari, but he nearly had a great winner in stoppage time. In the 82nd minute, Balotelli scored his second important late penalty in as many matches for Milan and shushed the Cagliari supporters after he did so. A short time later, in the second minute of injury time, Balotelli pulled off a graceful scissor kick right in front of goal off a floating header from Robinho at the end line.

Before Balotelli even had a chance to not celebrate, the referee blew his whistle and ruled that the ball had gone out as Robinho put his head to it. "Whether Balotelli's scissor kick counted or not, it looked nice and that's all that matters," said someone who isn't a Milan fan.
