MLS Referee Down But Recovers Well

At 3:55, an LA Galaxy player inadvertently knocks the referee Jorge Gonzalez down. However, the referee’s focus is still on the game and he recovers well and in time to clearly see the foul in the goal area. The referee points theatrically to the penalty spot, although there is no doubt that the message is decisive, positive and clear. Penalty.

Note: At 1:25, Landon Donovan of LA Galaxy scores probably the MLS goal of the season. David Beckham is already acknowledging the goal (he raises his hand) even though the ball is still some 6 yards away from the goal line. It was a peach of a volley.
