Nigel De Jong Is Unimpressed by Referee Djamel Haimoudi's Medal

Sean SwabyUK Staff WriterDecember 5, 2016

Algerian referee Djamel Haimoudi had a bit of a shocking World Cup. 

In one play alone in the third-place match, he managed both not to send Thiago Silva off in a clear-cut red card and to award a penalty for a foul outside of the penalty area. 

His awful World Cup display is well-documented here

When Haimoudi was given a medal in the aftermath by Sepp Blatter, Dutch man Nigel de Jong appeared wholly unimpressed by it.
