It surely bears comparison to Maradona’s
“Hand of God” goal versus England,
the superb flyer El-Hadji Diouf took,
airbound in the Ewood Park air
beyond the desperate fingers
of Blackburn’s keeper Brad Friedel
but referee Steve Bennett had
no doubt, pointed to the spot.
He should have seen the replays
as we the TV audience did,
with Diouf airborne
on the Hand of God.
