Uefa hands Luiz Adriano one-game ban

The Shakhtar striker unsportingly scored when a team-mate attempted to pass the ball to Nordsjaelland's goalkeeper during their 5-2 win over the Danes in the Champions League (Nordsjaelland, Shakhtar Donetsk, UEFA Champions League)

If it was illegal, then shouldn't the referee disallow the goal and book the player for unsporting behavior at that moment?

The goal was legal as you are not forced to return the ball to the opposition so the referee can't disallow it. But the way he scored it was unsporting and that's why he got the ban.

Then why do clubs like barcelona exist if Uefa can ban unsportmanship??
Your oint is hereby not valid anymore.

thats absurd if the goal is legal then its legal. end of story. its not up to uefa to deide what they think is sportsman like or not thats ridiculous

It's a sportsmanship thing, there's no law against it in the rules. Really though, Shakhtar should have allowed the opposition to score one in return as it was clearly the wrong thing to do...and Adriano knew it.

most of the shakhtar players looked like after the goal they was going to allow the opposition to score but the captain didnt allow it at all

The entire team should be suspended. It's a complete disgrace what they did. And then the coach is ordering them to give a goal and they don't? I hope they get trashed in the round of 16.

I know his argument is flawed, after all teams like madrid play like animals taken out of a zoo every time they play superior teams. They shouldnt exist anymore
