A tale of two (soft) penalties

Andorra - Israel 1 - 4 Balaj

Israel wanted a second victory in a row, and got an early, lucky goal. Damari tried to send a cross from right to left, but the ball, unintentionally, eventually crossed the goal-line (3'). Soon Andora equalised from the penalty-spot (15'), but Israel led again before half-time, and added another two (the last one a converted penalty-kick, 90'+6') to win convincingly.

Mr. Balaj

Generally, there should have been an easy match for the ref. and except one incident - a flare-up close to the half-time whistle, 45'+2', which was resolved sensibly with yellow to both players - it was just that. When Shechter (israel) substituted a tem-mate (65') he complicated matters for the ref., being aq notorious diver. He then received two free-kicks instead of letting Israel play the advantage (probably because the way Shechter tumbles to the ground when he is fouled makes the ref. think he might be hurt, and he decides to stop the game "just in case"). The third fall was inside the Andoran penalty-box (90'+5'), as if the Andoran goalie fouled him from behind (after a terrible miss in front of the goal). Balaj fell for it, awarded a penalty-kick, which was the last ball-kick of the match. Much earlier the referee (or perhaps hiss aar, Popa) awarded a penalty-kick to Andora after 14 minutes of play. In this case, probably for pushing from behind. It seemed to be the aar's decision as initially play went on till Andora missed a goal, only then the ref. indicated the decision (I'm yet not sure if Balaj tried to let advantage play, or just decided after hearing from his aar).

historic matches

Both teams were keen on winning - Cyprus after a surprise away win in Zenica (Bosnia), Israel a right-foot opener to their campaign. At the end, Israel had the upper hand after leading 2-0 at half-time.

referee

Mr. Orsato has climbed quickly through FIFA and UEFA rankings, already having some CL group-stage games behind in the 2013-2014 season. On the evening he proved to be a very good assessor of foulqnon-foul play. However, he proved inconsistent when considering advantage options. Some impeccable applications of the advantage rule (6', 49', 80') compenstated for cases where he robbed teams and players of using advantage for their benefit (50', 60', 90'+2'). I also didn't like his behaviour when Ben Haim (israel was substituted (74'). As the score-line was 2-1, the player walked slowly towards the touch-line. The referee didn't like it, but his reaction was unbecoming - he ran quickly, grabbed the player and pulled him aggressively, enabling himself to brandish the yellow card in front of the player and not behind his back: the idea was right, the execution - wrong.
