    • Were you close enough to see what happened? I only saw it on TV and didn’t get a clear view of the incident and I don’t believe it was repeated, so I’m not really sure what happened, like the vast majority of the public. I’m sure the match review panel looked at it though, from many angles, and took the match officials’ reports into consideration, too. So I suppose that maybe we have to accept that the panel got it right?
