Prince Fahid of Kuwait has France goal chalked off
One of the most bizarre World Cup moments occurred in 1982 during Kuwait's match with France. The French were winning 3-1 when Alain Giresse blasted in another when the Kuwaiti defenders were rooted to the spot.
The Arab team said they stopped upon hearing a mysterious whistle from the stands.
When the referee ignored their pleas, Prince Fahid, the Kuwaiti FA president decided to get involved, coming down from his seat in the stands to remonstrate with the referee.
Incredibly, the ref gave into his demands and disallowed the goal.
Kuwait lost the match 4-1 anyway, but referee Miroslav Stupar was banned from officiating and Prince Fahid was fined £8,000.
