His strike blazed over the crossbar as the ENgland captain fell to the ground clutching his foot.

There was contact made but the referee initially failed to award a penalty.

However he was advised to review the incident on the VAR monitor and reversed his decision after watching the foul back multiple times.

But some fans were still surprised to see the spot-kick given and quickly showed their appreciation for Zwayer.

One supporter reacted saying: “Love this ref – never in doubt.”

Another added: “Love this dodgy ref to be honest 😂”
