Zidane ‘Very angry’ with Controversial Sevilla Penalty as Real Madrid Lose Ground in La Liga

A VAR review determined Eder Militao had handled the ball in the box, negating a penalty at the other end after a swift counter.

During a review of a 78th-minute penalty won by Karim Benzema, referees determined an earlier play at the other end involved a handball in the box by Real Madrid defender Eder Militao. Rather than giving Real Madrid a spot kick, Sevilla were awarded one. Ivan Rakitic converted to take a one-goal advantage before Eden Hazard equalised deep in stoppage time. While Zidane had the call explained to him, he said later: "What they hav...

France Seeks to Set Age of Sexual Consent to 15 Years

France’s government wants to set the age of sexual consent at 15 and make it easier to punish long-ago child sexual abuse.

"An act of sexual penetration by an adult on a minor under 15 will be considered a rape," Justice Minister Eric Dupond-Moretti said Tuesday, Feb 9, on France-2 television. Perpetrat...
