A ghost goal, also known as a phantom goal, is a term used in association football to describe a questionable decision, usually involving incertitude or controversy as to whether or not a ball crossed the goal line. A ghost goal can be awarded without the ball ever crossing the goal-line and, conversely, it can also be awarded when the ball crosses the goal-line unseen by the referee.

Famous quotes containing the words goal and/or ghost:
“From top to bottom of the ladder, greed is aroused without knowing where to find ultimate foothold. Nothing can calm it, since its goal is far beyond all it can attain. Reality seems valueless by comparison with the dreams of fevered imaginations; reality is therefore abandoned.”
—Emile Durkheim (18581917)
“An old, mad man still climbing in his ghost,
My fathers ghost is climbing in the rain.”
—Dylan Thomas (19141953)
