Just a day after he railed against “dubious refereeing” decisions that have cost his team in the Malaysian Super League (MSL) this season, LionsXII coach Fandi Ahmad saw his men suffer another controversial call by the man in the middle.

In the 54th minute of the LionsXII’s clash against Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) at the Jalan Besar Stadium last night, the home side were leading 2-1 when the ball hit the chest of Afiq Yunos in the danger area, only for referee Nazmi Nasarudin to blow for a penalty.

JDT top-scorer Luciano Figueroa stepped up, and even though goalkeeper Izwan Mahbud denied him from the penalty spot, the rebound fell kindly to the Argentinian and he swept it home.

The heads of the LionsXII players dropped after that goal and they were eventually sunk by a 75th-minute goal by Argentina’s Jorge Pereyra Diaz, who was the best player on the pitch.
