Pollís performance that night was the worst I have ever seen from a referee and Iíve seen a few bad ones over the years.
I agree with this 100%, how he missed the hand ball by Cole was just unbelievable, it is still in my mind to this day. Impossible for either him or one of his linesmen not to have seen it. Cole is about 17ft 13" and he has his arm reaching out in the air...and no one sees it except the entire attendance. Very odd.
