Twitter reacts to Danish referee’s honest reaction after failing to play advantage

One doesn’t very often get to see a referee acknowledge his mistake during the match, at least not in top-level football.

But a Danish referee seemingly went against the grain and has perhaps delivered the most wholesome moment we’ll see this season.

A match official became visibly distraught as he sank to the ground after realizing that he had made a big mistake by not playing advantage.

The incident took place during the 1-1 draw between Vendsyssel FF and FC Fredericia in the Danish 1st Division (the second tier of the Danish football league).

It was a bad sequence of events for the ref no doubt, but Twitter loved how he was able to recognize and take responsibility for his mistake.

Check out the reaction below.
