We were treated to a masterclass of penalties, until £20m defender Dejan Lovren stepped up and sent his spot-kick into orbit. Whilst he was criticised, the question is why on earth was he down to take the fifth penalty?

That debate has raged on from the final whistle and is likely to run for a couple of days, whilst I’m afraid we also don’t have the answer to the bizarre decision.
