How was this not a penalty? Jack Robinson (England U21’s) brings down Italy’s Allesandro Florenzi
- June 5, 2013
With the scores at 0-0 late in the first half it seemed certain the referee in charge at the Under 21’s would give Italy a penalty against England.
Jack Robinson of Liverpool quite clearly brought down the Italian in the box but the referee let play continue.
Israel had earlier been awarded a controversial penalty against Norway, but hopefully refereeing will improve after the first day of the exciting Under 21 tournament.
