Referee pulls down striker on edge of the box! (Betar Jerusalem v Maccabi Petah Tikva)

There was an amusing moment in Israel’s Ligat Ha’al on Sunday…

Betar Jerusalem were pressing for their second goal in an eventual 3-0 win when the referee blocked one of their forwards from progressing down the inside left channel.

Had it been a defender, it would probably have been a clear free-kick!

As it was, the referee looked more injured than the forward…
