Most blatant handball in Women?s WC somehow goes uncalled

Thierry Henry has nothing on this.

In the 16th minute, with Australia already up 1-0 over Equatorial Guinea, Leena Khamis hit the post with an attempt to score her second goal of the match. When the ball came off the post, Equatorial Guinea defender Bruna casually grabbed the ball with both hands, then dropped it as the Australian players jumped around, shouting as loud as they could for a handball call. And, even more unexplainable than the blatant handball itself, the call didn't come and play carried on.

Luckily, Australia still won 3-2 despite the non-call, but the officials for this match have some serious questions to answer. Namely, "Can you see?"
