Arjen Robben Dives Against Mexico Wins Penalty [GIF]
ESPN.Netherlands forward Arjen Robben drew a controversial stoppage-time penalty to beat Mexico 2-1 in the World Cup Round of 16. Five minutes later, Robben cut inside, felt contact from Rafa Marquez, and went down. Robben throws his arms back and falls to the ground like he was shot. He certainly goes down easily and unnecessarily dramatically here. It's not a case where he made something out of nothing - Marquez did foul him. It's a case where Robben feels a little bit of contact and behaves as if Marquez tackled him to the ground in order to win the penalty.
