Up until this season, 1978/79 was the last season that Hapoel Hadera was in the top league. That same season, Maccabi won the league title and in the first round the Yellow & Blue played at Hadera in a match that they win 3:1 but the center of attention surrounded their last goal. Giora Spiegel’s individual effort ended with the ball heading into the goal but went out through a hole in the net. After a few minutes of consultation, the referee crew confirmed that it was certainly a goal. Check out the video clip from 40 years ago:
