VIDEO: Dude refuses a PK

The Offside has the detailed details, but here's the idea.

-- Ref calls PK.
-- Forward doesn't think he deserves it.
-- Forward tells ref it wasn't a PK.
-- Ref swallows his pride and awards a drop ball.
-- Attacking team kicks ball out for a goal kick.
-- Game resumes and everyone's happy.

Wow. I'm still stunned.

In a sport riddle with violence, diving and cheaters wherever you look, to find a story like this is that much more uplifting. Well done guys.

There is hope.

Cristiano Ronaldo said he was ashamed at this blatant regard for sportsmanship.
