The Premier Soccer League really needs VAR in the referee department. Poor officiating cost Supersport United and this goal was the final nail in the coffin as they lost the match by 2 - 1. Bloemfontein Celtic took the lead in the 46th minute from an unusual goalscorer named Van Der Ross. Supersport United cameback to equaliser matters when Matsatsantsa's Lucky Mohomi shot from outside the penalty area. Sera Motebang sealed the victory over Supersport United in the 80th minute after Harris Tchilimbou passed him to score the winning goal.image cred : @SuperSportTV / Twitter

A gruelling decision was made by the referee to allow Bloem Celtic's second goal to stand. The goal was offside and we don't know how the linesman missed it, even the national sports broadcaster Supersport TV picked it up and they tweeted about it on social media, "Celtic lead against Supersport (amazed eyes emoji) Sera Motebang puts his side ahead but Matsatsantsa will feel hard done with the player in an offside position as the pass was made."image cred : @SuperSportTV / Twitter

Many fans in the South African football fraternity might not understand the offside rule really well. The offside rule from FIFA states that when the ball is played or passed by a player from the same team and a player from that same team is already in an offside position, the referee should make the decision to call for an offside decision against the player who the ball is passed to, unless if, he doesn't interfere with play. We hope the reader understands.image cred : @SKmsthali / Twitter
