    The language barrier is not helping.

    I got this from a youtubes comment. Sounds good to me.
    The first batch of penalties were all disallowed for encroachment by the taker's team's players moving into the box / 'D' before the ball is kicked. One of them rightly ends up getting booked for this. The second penalty is retaken because the goalie moves forward from his line before the ball is kicked - you're allowed to move along the goal-line, but not off it. You could call the ref pedantic, but he's applying the laws correctly - it's other refs that don't apply this consistently.

    I'm guessing that ref is now flipping burgers

    Reminds me of the 82 World Cup
    France vs Kuwait.

    First Round game, France was up 3-1 late in the game and score a 4th goal.

    Pandemonium breaks out on the Kuwaiti side saying they'd stopped playing because they'd heard a whistle in the stands and thought Giresse was offsides. The Cheikh at the head of Kuwaiti Football goes onto the field, talks to the ref, who decides to nullifiy the goal.

    When all else fails, get yourself a Cheikh
