POOR old Dan Majstorovic. The hapless Celtic defender was in the wrong place at the wrong time as he was credited with the 2000th goal scored by England.
The Swede could hardly do anything about it as Gareth Barry's miscued header flicked off his nut and into the net to give England a 1-0 win at Wembley.
It was initially given as Barry's goal but TV replays clearly showed his effort was going wide until it deflected off Majstorovic.
Ladbrokes spokesman Alex Donohue said: “Punters who backed Barry to hit the landmark goal can breathe easily. We've paid out on him to net first at a handsome price as well as settling all other bets by the letter of the law.”
Bet365's Steve Freeth said: “As a gesture of goodwill we have paid out on Gareth Barry as on first, last and anytime scorer markets as well as scorecast bets of Barry/1-0.”
Meanwhile, bet365 don't expect UEFA to alter Wayne Rooney's three-match ban at the appeal hearing on December 9. It's 1-3 the ban stays the same and 9-4 it's reduced.
