Soft penalty! YesCan you give? YesWalker silly right there? YesWhy he didn’t jus head the ball away? Don’t know— Jan Aage Fjortoft (@JanAageFjortoft) June 18, 2018#WorldCup Walker was guessing where the #TUN player was.Classic penalty though— Stewart Weir (@sweirz) June 18, 2018My timeline full of people saying no penalty? Come on… #WorldCup— David Meyler (@DavidMeyler7) June 18, 2018Never a penalty. #Walker used his arms to stop the forward getting a run on him. That’s the standard of refereeing so far in the #WorldCup— Stephen Warnock (@StephenWarnock3) June 18, 2018Say what you will about it being a soft penalty to award, but Kyle Walker is utterly brainless to put his arm out like that. Needless.— Leanne Prescott (@_lfcleanne) June 18, 2018The softest of pens #TUNENG1-1— Dan Walker (@mrdanwalker) June 18, 2018Pure stupidity from Kyle Walker. Brainless— James Pearce (@JamesPearceEcho) June 18, 2018It was a penalty. Hard to see what Walker was doing there swinging his arm like that. Referee had a good, clear view and stopped in his tracks to point to the spot. @MirrorFootball— Darren Lewis (@MirrorDarren) June 18, 2018This is honestly one of the most Tottenham things I’ve ever seen.You can take Walker out of Tottenham but not the Tottenham out of Walker.— Becky (@becksthfc) June 18, 2018I mean, what is Walker thinking there? Such a ridiculous foul to give away when the team is incredibly comfortable. #worldcup— Andrew Gaffney (@GaffneyVLC) June 18, 2018England players looking at Kyle Walker like… #ENG #ENGTUN #WorldCup pic.twitter.com/iovcOdyysI— Footy Humour (@FootyHumour) June 18, 2018I don’t know how Walker’s foul there was Sterling’s fault, but I’m sure we can blame him somehow.— Sam Kelly (@HEGS_com) June 18, 2018Soft or not, stupidity from Walker.— Daniel Storey (@danielstorey85) June 18, 2018Despite a number of good chances to add another goal, England went into half-time level at 1-1.The Three Lions would end up taking all three points late, as Harry Kane scored his second goal of the game in stoppage time to give his side a 2-1 win.
