England's women's U19s side are to replay the last few seconds of a match because the referee gave the wrong decision after disallowing a penalty.

This kind of thing is what causes uproar. Why is this decision different to any other stupid mistake by a referee which can completely change a match? Just because there was only a minute left? If you're going to say that a referees decision is final then you need to be consistent in the application of that. What if Norway had a player wrongly dismissed in the first half? Would they have given Norway the player back for the last minute too? Pah.

Yeah, I saw on the news this morning.

So when do we replay the cup game from the point where the penalty and red card should have been given for Allen's handball? :hyper:
