Police fired tear gas into the stands in Nairobi after officials awarded a controversial goal to Guinea Bissau over Kenya, the Associated Press reports. Kenya could possibly face sanctions after fans threw projectiles – including stones – onto the Guinea Bissau bench after Zimbabwean official Norman Matemela claimed that the ball had fully crossed the line, putting Guinea Bissau up 1-0. Kenya fans, on the other hand, felt differently. Very differently.
The game was far from a friendly, aside from riotous reasons – it was an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier, and Kenya's loss on the books put them in a difficult situation for advancing to next year's tournament. The incident took place in the 81st minute, and stopped play for a full 30 minutes. The game closed out with a Guinea Bissau win, and will be under review by officials. A good enough reason for worldwide goal line technology if I've ever seen one.
