Ladbrokes pay out on goal that never was

| 28.06.2010

Ladbrokes have paid out on their Geoff Hurst special market despite Frank Lampard’s ‘goal’ against Germany not being given.

The firm had quoted 10/1 about a Three Lions strike going in off the crossbar.

Spokesman Nick Weinberg said: “It was the most popular special market prior to kick off. Everyone bar Geoff Hurst was on.

“Everybody could see that it was in, apart from the men that mattered most.”
