Walter Bassegio's 64th-minute strike burst the ball on impact but it still flew into the net, reports Het Laatste Nieuws.
Anderlecht equalised with the goal before going on to win their league game against La Louviere 2-1.
La Louviere claim the match should have been stopped when the ball burst and play resumed from where it happened.
But the referee claimed he did not notice the ball had burst until it was already in the back of the net.
The club has protested to the Belgian Football Association.
But seriously, in all my life i have never kick a football so hard that it bursts!
I bet it was one of those Adidas Rotero balls... that's the most rubbish piece of kit that i've seen Adidas made for a long long time... why can't they make balls and boots like they used to? Anyone remember the 1986 Adidas official world cup ball (i think it was called "tango" or something)... and how about the classic copa mundial boot circa 1974, and the 6 studded "world cup" model... those were classics.. even the old puma "king" that maradona wore was very good (but of course!). You buy a "predator" boot nowadays or one of those lightweight nike zoom boots and they start to fall apart after a few months. :x
