The now famous penalty scored by Leo Messi and Luis Suárez is one that will live long in the memory, and has received almost universal praise.  

Footballers from around the globe gave it the seal of approval as Messi and his team-mates concocted a plan to replicate the penalty move scored by Cruyff (and missed by Pires and Henry). 

From Gary Lineker to Troy Deeney, the footballing world was in awe at what they had seen and that anyone had the audacity to try it, let alone pull it off. 

However, despite that almost universal praise, there have been a number of dissenting voices who thought that the actions of the Barcelona front three qualified as unsportsmanlike behaviour, notably Kilkenny's Richie Power.

Power wasn't the only one, however, as Tomás Guasch of Marca was not pleased with it either, saying that if Ronaldo and Benzema had tried that, people would have been calling for them to be sent to the front line in Afghanistan.
