What is the rule should the Goalkeeper save the penalty, (as in a case I experienced), the ref blows his whistle then the ball which went away from goal had some backspin on it and slowly proceeded to make its way into the net while the keeper was celebrating winning the shoot out with his team. Objections from the opposing Manager resulted in the kick being taken again and this time they scored and we went from winning to losing the shot out. Anyone know what should have happened?
The penalty kick is completed when the ball stops moving, goes out of play or the referee stops play for any offence.
The referee erred by blowing the whistle before the procedure outlined above was complete. The goal should have stood instead of being retaken.
