Referee Dennis Higler recognized Sunday after the match between Feyenoord and AZ (2-1) that he has the guests from Alkmaar disadvantaged. The arbitrator failed during the match, a penalty kick, to give it to AZ, but gave up after to error.

Feyenoorder Jan-Arie van der Heijden slipped halfway through the first half at a 0-0 stand in the penalty area with his arm against the ball. That was not intentional, judged Higler as.

“But now that I have the images I have seen, the arm further from the body than I thought”, recognized the arbitrator at the NOS. “It would have been better to take a penalty kick to give.”

The referee insists that this kind of cases is always difficult to assess. “A handsbal rate is perhaps the toughest there is. The ball will often accidentally against one arm and then the question is how far that arm is stretched out.”

In the case of Van der Heijden was Higler by assistant pointed out that there hands was. “But I was myself there, had a good position. I was of the opinion that his arm closer to his body.”
