    Penalty discussion hits Netherlands

    Vlaar dives under ball: hit penalty anyway?

    The penalty Ron Vlaar which the Netherlands Wednesday night opened the penalty shootout against Argentina, may be the most talked about moment of the World Cup. In a new movie shows how Vlaar, if the ball rebounds, withdraws his shoulder and dives underneath the ball.
    Last night popped another video, taken from the gallery, which show how the ball after the Argentine goalkeeper Romero has turned him first bounces back into the field and then moves back to the goal line. It is not clear whether the ball crossed the goal line also passes.
    Other images taken with the camera that moves over the field, then seemed to indicate that Vlaar touches the ball with his shoulder after it had bounced back. But now there is a third film that not only shows how Vlaar under the ball dives through, but also how surprised and indignant, he seems to be when the ball crosses the goal line as yet.
    Former referee Mario van der Ende mingled last night on Twitter right in the discussion, which seemed settled after the images which Vlaar the bouncing ball seems to touch and thus would have affected the job. Them Van der Ende morning publishes the text of the rule book in which the penalty shootout is treated.
    It is stated clearly: "If the ball rebounds from the goalkeeper, crossbar or goalpost, then on or before the goal line touches the ground and then passes the goal line, a goal shall be awarded the penalty that has had its effect at the time. the ball over the goal line. "So it was a goal?
