NO ERA PENAL: Crying Mexico Fan Is A Peek Into The Sorrow Of A Country Wrongly Dealt A Penalty Kick


Arjen Robben makes people miss in the box, so the lesson learned here is “Don’t let him get the ball down there.” That being said, he wasn’t in much of a position to score when Mexico’s Rafa Marquez stepped on his foot in stoppage time, nor was he geniunely sent to ground. It was a flop, yes, but it also was a foul. Regardless, it’s a tough way to get knocked out of the World Cup after playing as well as Mexico has thus far, especially after winning for most of the game.

This guy is taking it particularly hard.
