The goal shouldn't have stood for mine. Schwarzer got himself into an awful position, yes, but he still would have made at least some contact with the ball if he hadn't been blocked.
As for the penalty call at the end of the game - you could argue that the Japanese player had lost the ball already but as far as I know that has no impact on whether its a foul or not so it probably should ahve been a penalty.
He’s thrown a kettle over a pub, what have you done?
