The majority of the MPs believes that the national team of Ukraine has the right and must appeal against the judge’s mistake – not counted goal in the second half of the Ukraine-England match, ForUm learned from the sidelines of the Parliament.

As the MP from the Party of Regions Vladyslav Lukyanov explained to a ForUm correspondent, "Ukraine has the right to, and I hope will appeal, but unfortunately, it does not influence the subsequent events of Euro 2012."

The MP said that different sanctions may be applied to the judge: reproof, suspension, some disciplinary actions, but the match result will not be reconsidered. "It shocks and hurts me. But, no such luck! In football, as in the Parliament, upon voting you cannot change the decision," Lukyanov said.

In turn, the MP from the NU-NS faction Vyacheslav Kyrylenko also told a ForUm correspondent that the Ukrainians could appeal against the judge's action, but the result will not be changed. Moreover, he believes that if the goal was scored, the Ukrainian national team could score more on the rise and finally win.

The MPs say the representatives of the Ukrainian football league should apply directly to the UEFA President Michel Platini.

As reported, on June 19, the Ukrainian team lost 0:1 in the last Euro 2012 group stage match against England and dropped out of the tournament.
