WORLD OF FOOTBALL: Dida dive ref rumpus.
WORST decision of the week has to go to Spanish ref Ontanaya Lopez-Astillero who sent off Osasuna keeper Elia after Almeria striker Negredo did a Dida.
Negredo tried to kid on that Elia had booted him in the head during a clash in the box and collapsed.
The ref played on for two minutes until Elia, worried after all that time that Negredo must genuinely have hurt himself, signalled to stop the game.
Elia won't be so charitable in future as the ref then decided Negredo must have been kicked and red-carded the keeper. Outraged coach Cuco Ziganda also was sent off for protesting.
