Luis Garcia, Edgar Davids and Stefan Effenberg discuss infamous ‘ghost goal’ fifteen years later (Video)

Liverpool made history as they came back from 3-0 down in the 2005 Champions League final in Istanbul against AC Milan to eventually win the contest on penalties, but there was (and still is) a lot of controversy regarding the way they got past Chelsea in the semifinals.

The only goal of the two-legged tie was scored by Luis Garcia, but the ball doesn’t seem to have crossed the line at all. With no goal-line technology at the time, it was allowed to stand.

To this day, Garcia believes the decision was the right one, but Stefan Effenberg and Edgar Davids disagree.
