    Yea that'll be an FK not a PK.

    Either way since it was a push and not an attempt at ball, it's a red card.

    That's a pretty light push, but whatever.

    What a ****ing joke Sweden is. I will 100% cheer against them. If it's a Brazil/Sweden final, I'll watch Tennis instead.

    I won't support this sport with this much diving lol

    I'd love it if they reversed this and then Switzerland went up the other side and scored.

    Well, this is what you get from teams like Denmark/ Sweden/ Iceland. A granite defense, but not much creativity offensively.

    Sweden isn't good with a ball, but they know how to not allow goals.

    From the angles I saw, it looked more like it was momentum and slight contact causing him to lose his footing - I play forward and have been the guy tumbling in loads of those situations. There didn't seem to be too much in that to me.

    Switzerland ****ed this up really badly. Sweden is utter trash but if you don't score against such a team you deserve to go home.

    Same exact play happened in the France/Argentina game... the foul was also outside the box but France got the penalty.

    Are you going to be bias and say Sweden wasn't flopping today?

    Not at all. He started holding outside the box, kept holding inside the box and pushed him inside the box.
