[VIDEO PICK: World Cup] Dutch goalkeeper Jasper Cillesson being replaced by backup Tim Krul for the penalty shootout against Costa Rica has become the most famous substitution of the World Cup. Netherlands coach Luis Van Gaal decided that Krul would be the better keeper for the penalty kicks. And luckily for Van Gaal, he made the right decision.

The Netherlands went on to win the shootout, 4-3, with Krul making two saves. Cillesson and Krul discussed the substitution, Cillesson said that he was not aware that he was going to be replaced, and was ultimately disappointed, understandably wanting to be a part of the entire game. Krul knew he was going to sub in for Cillesson if it came to penalties, and claimed that he had been watching the game in a different light.

    Let's see, Krul handed the ball to his opponent, while likely simultaneously taunting his opponent. The referee should have intervened immediately, telling Krul and pointing to the goal line where he should be taking position. Any dissension or further interaction with an opponent by Krul would warrant a Caution. Oh yes, then there were the steps forward off his line before the kicks were taken that enabled him to block the PKs. That should have resulted in retakes, but again the referee did nothing! The whole thing should be an embarrassment to FIFA and the LOTG!!!!!
