Diego Abal under fire
The promising referee from Argentina, who had also been in charge of two matches at FIFA U17 World Cup 2011 in Mexico, has been attacked by "fans" of the Argentine football club San Lorenzo. People unfolded his address and phone number in the web. What happened? In the 67th minute of the league game between San Lorenzo - Colón, the assistant referee 2 raised his flag for offside. Abal however rejected the call made by his colleague, unfortunately, the defenders did not recognize that and Colón easily scored the equalizer. After having watched the incident quite often, the tendency is more likely that Abal was wrong with overruling the assistant referee 2.

In the meantime, Abal has admitted his error based on a wrong interpretation of the offside rule. He has been suspended by the Argentine Referee Association for an indefinite period.
