He's a legend alright, this guy is awesome. Every time he does something, I'm in awe. He embodies such great humility. Long live, Saint Iker. You deserve an applause and a bow. Legend!
Yeah, His intention was good..no doubt about that, but I think he talked with the Linesman, not the main Referee and the main Referee blew the whistle without hearing Ikar's request...3 minutes injury time was already reached.
But from the professional point of view, Ikar could not do this such of thing...it is the Referee who would control the game. If Iker really wanted to show respect to Italy..he could send a message to his teammates after scoring the 3rd goal (about set back a little)...not to the referee and requested a meaningless request.
