No keeper's union.

CHELSEA ........ 4 CARDIFF ......... 1 CHELSEA goalkeeper Petr Cech believes it was right that Eden Hazard's controversial equalising goal stood in Saturday's Barclays Premier League defeat of Cardiff.

As Bluebirds goalkeeper David Marshall bounced the ball, Samuel Eto'o nicked it, leading to Hazard netting in the 4-1 win.

The laws of the game stipulate that when a goalkeeper bounces a ball it is within his control and the strike should not have stood.

But Cech said: "It's always a difficult question, when you lose control or not lose control. In terms of bouncing it's not one motion, so it's totally up to the referee.
