England fans fume as Hungary given penalty despite Shaw clearly getting the ball

England fans were not impressed by the decision to award a penalty against Luke Shaw when the defender clearly got the ball.

Shaw went in with a high boot against Loic Nego, though the Manchester United man got there first and clearly got the ball.

The referee deemed it to be dangerous play, though, and awarded the visitors a spot-kick which Roland Sallai duly despatched.

Three Lions fans were not happy though, with one writing on social media: "Is that even a penalty? Shaw had every right to go for that ball and the player has decided to chuck his head in…?"

Another fumed: "I’ll never ever understand how that’s a f***ing penalty, he’s put his head down for the ball. What’s Luke Shaw supposed to to do? Not clear the ball?"

A third raged: "He plays the ball first – it’s as simple as that. Never a penalty in a million years."

With a fellow England fan adding: "Never a penalty for me. Controlled clearance with no contact or risk to the player."

Former England defender Matt Upson added: "Wow. That's a big decision from the referee!

"There are massive question marks over the penalty and whether Luke Shaw had the right to go for it. He catches him on the follow through but wins the ball and clears it.

"That's a brilliant, cool penalty though. He kept his head amid all that fuss about the award."
