Last Monday, during the female World cup, Nigerian Goalkeeper defended a penalty kick at the 75 minute mark only for it to be retaken due to the fact that she did not have her feet on the goal line as the shot was taken. Due to this, France went on to retake the penalty, score a goal, and win the match.
Nevertheless, last year, during the Denmark vs Croatia game, at the second half of the extra time, Denmark's goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel defended a penalty against Luka Modrić. And yet, if we see this image , it's pretty obvious that the goalkeeper does not have a single feet on the goal line. Shouldn't the penalty be retaken? Why did nothing happen here? And why are the referees so adamant about this rule in the female world cup?
