Penalty: South China v Sun Hei

The following occurred towards the end of the Division One league match between South China and Sun Hei on Tuesday 2 February 2010 at Hong Kong Stadium. Attendance was 1,557.

In the 77th minute, a penalty was awarded to South China as their striker #7 Chan Siu Ki was brought down. Initially, it appears that Sun Hei defender (#12) makes the foul. Here is the official match camera clip, courtesy of SCAAwebtv (the foul is seen at 0:30):


However, by looking at a different camera view, it appears more likely that the Sun Hei midfielder (#14) tracking back is the guilty party. Sun Hei players then start to argue to the Referee that the foul occurred outside the penalty area. The Referee stands firm. Here is the unofficial match camera clip:

In the end, the penalty was the match winner in what was an exciting match between current 1st placed South China and 5th placed Sun Hei (who notably beat South China 3-1 earlier in the season on Sunday 22 November 2009).
