Women’s Euro 2022 – before England – Norway: Leah Williamson and the penalty withdrawn … after five days

4 April 2015. Belfast’s seaside land is somewhat deserted. A poster may be attractive on paper, but it does not attract the attention of the masses or the attention of the media. The England U19 women’s team begins the ‘Elite Tour’ that will lead them to the 2015 European U19 Championship against Norway. So far, nothing stirs the kingdom. Especially since the “Three Lionesses” are quickly trailing 0-2 by the young Norwegian Guard. Rosella Ayane works to reduce the gap before extra time in the meeting will turn pointless.

90 + sixth minute: England snatch a penalty kick. Captain of the national team, as also at Euro 2022, Leah Williamson takes the ball in hand to allow her to draw. In a bad situation, the ball ends up in the background despite everything and England think they are in the score. But the German referee of the match, Maria Curtis, decided to cancel the goal due to the entry of young English women into the penalty area before their teammate’s strike.

The rule in this case is simple: the penalty must be withdrawn. But the German referee decided to award a free kick to the Norwegians, who are happy to leave safely. English, with the greatest incomprehension, does not manage to catch up and therefore loses 1-2.

But it won’t stop there. UEFA will resume. The European Commission has no choice but to demand the abolition of the penalty. “We previously wrote that Norway had qualified, but on 8 April the UEFA Ethics and Discipline Review Committee announced that the England-Norway match played on 4 April should be replayed from the moment the penalty kick was taken. It was given to England, which at the time was 1-2 . late”, then writes UEFA on its official website.

Appeal at minute 90 + 6 …

Nothing less was needed to arouse the kingdom’s interest. UEFA has called for the match to resume on April 9, five days after the initial stand. This time around, a few curious onlookers and Sky Sports cameras immortalized this surreal moment. The referee was changed on the instructions of UEFA. After the warm-up, the 22 players present at the time of the penalty kick are called to the edge of the Norwegian roof. Clock: 90 + 6 minutes.

Williamson recovers the ball… and scores. The full edition and qualification is on hand for Euro U19. “I think I’ve been through all the emotions for the past 24 hoursThen she smiled contentedly. But that’s not just me, it’s mostly for the team. I know everyone says it but it really was. In the end, I never felt as calm as when I blew her whistle“.

Everything ended well but what I lived this week I don’t wish on anyoneShe later admitted to Sky Sports. I had asked my mother not to say anything if I had missed this punishment. Nobody would have known about it but you at Sky Sports decided to put up the cameras (laughs).” This Monday, against Norway, there will be many cameras trained on the brave England captain. And even more if a penalty whistles …
