posted by Dan White

A Dutch newspaper has released a video from a fan inside the stadium that shows that Holland’s Ron Vlaar’s first penalty in the semi-final shoot-out against Argentina.

Romero saved for Argentina and celebrated long before the ball stopped moving. Spin on the ball took back towards the goal although its inconclusive as to whether the ball actually crossed the line.

What do you think, should the penalty have stood?
