Cornwall won the toss and stayed in the goal with the side of their supporters, however in the second half when Cornwall scores a goal, Justin takes a flip off the goal post and the Cornwall supporters are seen cheering behind him! Illyria supporters should have been seen since the goals would have changed in the second half. Later on in the movie when Duke and Justin are about to fight, Justin is on the goal side with the Illyria supporters.

At the end of the game there is no final whistle. If the PK was in the last seconds, the goal wouldn't have counted because the game would have ended as soon as the goalie saved the ball.

In reality, débutante escorts are chosen almost eight months in advance and there are teas and manners sessions throughout those eight months. There is no way that the characters could have switched escorts so late in the story and Viola would have never been able to be an actual débutante without successfully fulfilling her year-long requirements. The movie shows her joining the débutante process two weeks before the ball.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

In the weight room, when Duke and Viola are talking about Duke asking Viola out, Olivia can be seen in the corner of the shot on a machine, watching. In the next shot, someone who looks like her is on the treadmill. In the commentary, the actors and director mention that this was a different girl, and they didn't know why she was dressed the same.
The real Sebastian is subbed off in the first half of the football game because he is playing so badly, but then Viola (disguised as Sebastian) is subbed back on in the second half. In high school soccer, you can substitute as much as you want and return to the field after being removed.

Plot holes 

Viola takes her brother, Sebastian's, place by posing as him for 2 weeks at Illyria while he is in London. Viola is enrolled at a different school, Cornwall. No explanation is given as to how Viola is able to stay enrolled at Cornwall and get away with missing 2 weeks of classes. Multiple absences would result in a phone call to the parent/guardian and disenrollment would require their authorization.

Revealing mistakes 

When Viola acts as Sebastian, she must wear an ace bandage to hind the fact that she has boobs. However when she reveals the fact that she is a girl at the Cornwall/Illyria soccer game, she lifts up her shirt to show that she has boobs, but there is no ace bandage.
In the carnival scene when Justin and Duke are fighting, the tip of Justin's underwear can be seen over his pants. It changes from white to black, and then back again to white in between shots. It is pointed out in the pop-up trivia that his stunt double was wearing black underwear.

Towards the beginning of the movie, Viola (as Sebastian) is called to the principal's office. She then looks in his filing cabinet for her brother's school files and when she hears the principal open the door, she slams the cabinet door shut, catching her breast-reducing wrap in the cabinet. When she goes to slam the door, you can see Amanda Bynes' eyes look directly at the wrap, making sure that it is in the cabinet well enough to get caught.
