|World Cup 2018: Man Utd legend claims Kyle Walker should have been SENT OFF in England win
| sport The Tottenham man was in the right place to poke home and give the Three Lions the lead in the eleventh minute.Gareth Southgate’s side were in the ascendancy and had multiple chances to add to their lead.But the north African side found a route back into the game via a controversial refereeing decision.
Dylan Bronn floated a cross across England’s box but Walker was penalised for blocking the run of Syam Ben Youssef with his elbow.Ferjani Sassi planted his spot-kick confidently past goalkeeper Jordan Pickford as Tunisia went into the break at 1-1.Most viewers thought the decision sport was harsh but former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel was in agreement with the referee.In fact, the great Dane thought the official should have gone one further and issued Walker with a red card.
He told Russia Today: "It was a penalty, there is no doubt about that."He actually hits him and he is very, very lucky to get away with a yellow card because according to the rules, if you hit someone with your elbow, you're off - it's a red card.
"They got there in the end. I feel very happy for the England boys because if they hadn't have gotten there, the next couple of days would have been terrible for them. They would have been crucified by the English media."I'm not sure that they are going to go completely free because the second half was awful. sport The way they played in the second half is not promising for the next few games in the tournament but in the first half, they created so many chances.”
