No such chance from the man himself who branded Martin Atkinson, yesterday`s ref, as Mickey Mouse. His full interview read:

"There was a blatant foul prior to the penalty, which the referee ignored. We were camped in their half. Cacapa was on the ball and Johnson completely [pushed] him out the way, [nicked] the ball and [got] the penalty.
