Fifa have rejected a complaint that the penalty which won Brazil its match against Egypt in the Confederations Cup on Monday was awarded on the basis of a video replay.
The Egyptian Football Association lodged the complaint after losing 3-4 to Brazil in the match, which took place in Mangaung/Bloemfontein in South Africa.
Fifa said in a statement issued on Tuesday that Egypt had not questioned the correctness of the referee's decision to award a penalty, nor of his red-carding of Egypt's Ahmed El-Mohamadi. It had, however, "questioned the manner in which the referee, Howard Webb, came to his decision."
Dismissing the complaint, Fifa said a thorough analysis "revealed that the decision in question was achieved through teamwork between the match referee and his assistant referee number one, Mike Mullarkey, who confirmed the offence to the referee from his clear viewing angle."
