Watch: Keeper create ball-throwing farce in Holland

Feyenoord's Justin Bijlow took gamesmanship to another low when the goalkeeper threw a spare ball onto the field to prevent a Twente scoring chance. With his team leading, 1-0, in the first half, Bijlow foolishly left his penalty area for a slide tackle on Twente's Virgil Misidjan  near the sideline that sent the ball out of bounds. Misidjan was about to make the best of the situation with a quick throw-in for Twente to attack the empty goal, but Bijlow stopped play by heaving a spare ball onto the field to force a stoppage. After Misidjan reacted by throwing his ball at the keeper, Bijlow escaped with a yellow card. But Twente did get its equalizer, in the 68th minute, for a 1-1 tie.

    Was a yellow sufficient? Why didn't Twente play, instead of throwing the ball at the keeper (also, possibly a yellow card)? No, it's not possible to score with 2 balls on the field, but certainly a dangerous free kick was possible? Was the restart a throw-in after the yellow card was given, or a free kick? The ball is not in play, so an indirect free kick?
