Aubameyang robbed of goal against Spurs after offside call

Gabonese striker, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, was denied a clear goal during the Champions League encounter between his side Dortmund and Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday.

Aubameyang, who latched onto a brilliant cross from Mahmoud Dahoud before his clean finish, could have brought his side back into the game on 13 minutes as they were trailing 2-1 to their hosts at the time.

But the former African Player of the Year was ruled offside as the English side went on to add another goal to claim a 3-1 victory.
