Hey alright, punish the 61st rank team for something the 1st ranked team did and the FIFA referee allowed...ah what perfect logic! I truly hope they don't lose the ranking points because SA totally deserves this win. Fine or punish the referee, don't take away the hard earned ranking points from a struggling African nation.

LOL this is the thought among all South African football fans. theres a thought, when losing, just make illegal substitutions thus nullifying any points earned by the winning team.

Do you think Spain would do it with that specific intention? Really?

Spain, the World and European champions, worried about South Africa scoring some ranking points off them in a meaningless friendly?

Okaaaayyyyyyyyyy

@Computersaysno

no, i never said spain is worried about south africa. where did i say that? lol

what i meant is that if any big team risks losing points against another big team they can just pull this nonsense and save themselves.
