Howard Webb is not afraid to make Hulk angry.
The veteran referee outraged the Brazil striker and stunned the crowd at Estadio Mineiro in Belo Horizonte by making a handball call that negated what initially appeared to be a goal. With Brazil and Chile deadlocked at 1-1 in the second half of the opening game of the knockout stage at the 2014 World Cup, Hulk put the ball into the net in the 55th minute after controlling a long, high through ball into the penalty area. As Brazil and its fans celebrated, Webb waived off the goal and showed Hulk a yellow card for using his right arm as he brought the pass from Marcelo under control before his shot.
