At a Group G qualifier for the 2006 World Cup in Germany, Korean goalkeeper Lee Woon-jae blocks a header by France’s Patrick Vieira near the goal line in the 32nd minute. The referee ruled no goal, sparking a heated debate both in Korea and France. These photos were posted on a Korean Internet community site. In Photo 1, the ball appears to have crossed the goal line, while Photo 2 suggests that the ball seems to be on the goal line. At the time, many Korean Internet users leaned toward “no goal,” questioning the ball’s trajectory portrayed in Photo 2.
