"His shoe was still on. His ankle was somewhere else."

    I did not see this foul, however, I really believe that soccer needs to clean up the foul problems. I especially dislike the "professional" foul, just slows the flow of the game, an is an ententional foul to allow the team to regroup to stop a potential buildup of the opponet to get into a scoring position in most instances. Many talented an skilled players are "taken out" by cheap shots an lessor skilled players, those that committ these cheap shots an deliberate fouls should be ejected instead of getting off with a verbal warning or a yellow card...we pay to see finesse on the field by highly skilled players, if I want to watch rugby, will change take a player out on purpose after the player has spent a lifetime of developement of skills is criminal....
