    **** calls and gamesmanship happen in all footy codes. It's just much more obvious in soccer because a penalty usually has a proportionally bigger effect on the result than in other sports.

    ITBT he didn't really dive (IMO at least), legitimately fell over due to a massive airswing. Still obvs half grabbed his leg and appealed for a penalty when he hit the ground despite there being no contact.

    Having a major trophy decided by questionable sportsmanship and a dodgy refereeing decision just means Australian soccer has grown up and joined the world!

    The worst thing he did was run around like a ****ing tool celebrating the penalty call even before he'd kicked the goal.

    Would have been sweet sweet justice if he missed it. Wasn't to be unfortuntely.

    It was soft, and 50/50, but giving it a penalty was a fair decision.

    Penalty call was right: Shield | A-League | Fox Sports

    we're on a cricket forum. surely we should be full of praise for a player who has successfully tricked the ref?

    New Zealand lost to New Caledonia 0-2.

    Well, it's not the Socceroos, but it still needs a mention somewhere.

    Pretty average campaign for the All Whites, admittedly difficult conditions to play in but a draw against the Solomons and a loss today reflects a terrible tournament results wise.

    That was a great game to watch. Teams contrasting styles but evenly matched, and very entertaining. End to end stuff. Can't think of a better international played in this country tbh.

    Ref was a spud.
