Wow! It's a shame, but it's nobody's fault. The bug couldn't have been foreseen and it wasn't that obvious or rather, we know KO2's goal counting is generally a little dodgy. I watched the video of the final and of course I noticed both headers but the idea never came to mind "oh, something must be wrong with the setup/software". Lorenzo, man, if you did have that idea right away, I honestly think you must be a clever guy, because it's so improbable, it's hard to come up with that thought on the spot. And you should have spoken to somebody right after the match.

So I totally support that the result stands, this quirk only discovered days later. Of course it's a shame for Gianni, but the title isn't everything and he's brilliant either way and this will now be more memorable than some other finals.

Yes, Gianni will always be my "king of hearts" anyway :) .
