Footballs most suspicious goal earns Colombian team promotion to top division

A goal in Colombia's second division has been branded the 'most suspicious goal ever' as it sends Union Magdalena to the top division.

Magdalena visited Llaneros on Saturday with a victory guaranteeing promotion, but they were trailing in the 95th minute.

However, in a page taken straight from Manchester City's book, Magdalena scored twice in the stoppage time to clinch promotion.

But the goal has gone viral on social media as the Llaneros defenders appeared to let Magdalena walk the ball home.

And it has drawn fury from Colombia stars such as Juan Cuadrado on Twitter, who demanded respect for the game.

"To the good to the good, that lack of Respect for that Union goal," Cuadrado tweeted on Saturday evening.

And his international teammate Matheus Uribe added: "An embarrassment to Colombian soccer."

While one fan tweeted: "The incredible 95th-minute goal that secured promotion for Union Magdalena. Surely the most suspicious goal scored this decade."

"To make things even crazier, this was Union's 2nd goal. Looks very suspicious," a second added.

"We ask the disciplinary commission of the @Dimayor to carry out a rigorous investigation as soon as possible."

Magdalena's promotion came at the expense of Fortaleza, who finishes one point adrift, and their coach, Nelson Florez broke down in tears following the events.

"I am not ashamed to cry, because I feel robbed, we can lose, but not this way," he admitted afterwards.
