    would imagine so. Blatant handball, should be two matches.

    He had to react so fast though...at that point and from that distance it's surely anything that you can do?

    He was literally 3 feet from the guy.....

    What an unbelievable game! Great to watch and that could have been the first African team into the semis ever. Pressure pressure!

    After Kewell's I'm fully expecting it to be claimed as accidental in some quarters...

    He'll miss the next game, if they go through, and he probably thinks, as said before, he could of probably headed it, and not given away the pen, which he probably thought had lost them it at the time.

    In terms of the rules, surely that should be given as a goal instead of a penalty kick? That was 100% going in - no one behind him and the net....

    Are you really going to take a chance of missing it by trying to head a ball hit from 3 feet away and the game being over at that moment? It seems awfully risky tbh...

    If he tried to head it and missed it, surely questions would be asked about why he didn't get his hands up...
