All this ''oh no that's cheating, you're suppose to play fair and square'' I think goes out the window it's your team and it's either standing there while you see the ball about to go through the net and do nothing at all vs blocking it and sacrificing yourself getting disqualified but at least there is a chance the other team can miss a penalty shot.
If put in these situation and you can either stop the ball from going in or do nothing and let not only lose but your team goes home... what would you do?
If you do nothing it's 100% chance of losing (plus your team might then get pissed off at you for doing nothing) vs blocking the ball and there is now 70-90% of losing but at least still some hope. Then if you win, your team can consider you a hero for the day.
- I would block the upcoming goal and hope a penalty shot is missed... screw the ''fair and square'' thingVote A
- I would do nothing and still play fair, lost and let my team get eliminated... always be honestVote B

The professional foul is part and parcel of soccer. Until the punishment fits the crime, it will continue. For me a professional foul that receives a red card should be an award of a goal to opposition.0
