The Nzalang Feminina,came out swinging against the Matildas in a game full of oohs and ahhhs.
Hungarian referee Gyoengyi Gaal and her assistants couldn't stay out of the spot light so they throw themselves into the fray by making ridiculous calls or allowing the embarassing spectacle of a player catching a ball in the middle of play go unpunished.
One would ask, what was Equatorial Guinea's Bruna thinking when she caught the ball after it had grazed the post from an Aussie shot and what were the referee's assistants and the referee watching to allow the game to continue after Bruna's equally bizzare act ?
The good news is that both countries moved on from that incident with the Matildas being the most purposeful to come out tops with goals from Leena Khamis,.However, Equatorial Guinea's Anonma must be congratulated for capitalizing on 2 awkward Aussie defensive blunders which earned her a brace and her country's historic world cup goals.
