Daylight Robbery

There were calls for a FIFA investigation following the politicians versus media football match this afternoon at the new Playball facility in the Stormont grounds.  The politicians scored twice from open play, the DUP's Paul Givan and Alliance's Chris Lyttle both beating the media's skilful keeper Mark Simpson.  The media clawed the result back to 2 all thanks to two penalties including a very dubious second handball decision.  In the penalty shoot-out the media eeked out a 4-3 win.

The BBC's Stephen Nolan was the only player carded for a vicious tackle.  Questions are also being asked of the politicians manager, Dawn Purvis, who failed to intervene earlier with the entertaining but dodgy keeping of Kieran McCarthy.
