Colombia's Daniela Montoya Gets Away with Blatant Handball in Upset over France

Sean Swaby@seanswabyUK Staff WriterJune 13, 2015


It may not go down as the most famous missed handball in an international tournament, but it may be one of the most blatant. 

Colombia upset France, one of the Women's World Cup favourites, 2-0 on Saturday, but in the process, the No. 3-ranked French were denied a penalty when Daniela Montoya performed a volleyball move to avoid danger. 

Not that France have been involved in a controversial handball with World Cup-sized implications before...
