Yeah i agree very harsh.One of those occasions where the ref hasn't read the game/situation just enforced the letter of the law.Was it 'handball' yes..could he do anything about it no..therefore not a pen.
ball to hand hand to ball? the ref was a blinder and its a shame we can't have such qualified refs in england. some time these things go for us, sometimes against. had it been at the other end we would't be complaining, would we? lets be happy with such an exciting first half performance, it reminded me of how we used to play and i hope its a sign of things to come
