In situations like that, there has to be some sort of rule whereby a "penalty goal" can be awarded.
Justice done in the end in my view as the free kick that led to the cross in ect was never a free kick. As for the hand ball well it was probably instinctive as it happened that quick he would not have time to think about it.
I don't think he is a cheat, he did what came instinctively to him, as soon as he was sent off, I said to my m8...he could be a national hero if they miss this penalty.
He was punished by getting sent off and I would bet when the commitee look at it again, they will ban him from 2 matches and he will miss the final, that will be to appease the Africans.
I dont think they can up it m8.
Im sure its only violent conduct that carries a higher tarrif
They can Ian m8, after every straight red car they open an investigation and have the power to increase any bans, they can increase this one due to unsportsmanlike conduct.

Glad to see common sense prevailed, I was sure they would increase it just to appease the Africans but it wouldn't have been fair if they had.
