Referee Martin Atkinson only cautioned Elano for a 41st-minute challenge on Faye, but Sam Allardyce was far from happy.

Allardyce: "He went completely over the ball - there was no attempt to play the ball whatsoever.

"You can't tell me Elano is a tackling player anyway, so he just went to do him."

Eriksson: "It was not the so-called two-footed tackle which has been debated so much.

"It was a tackle and a yellow card, but I don't think he should have been sent off for that."
