Peter Crouch insists the referee who overturned Atletico Madrid's late penalty against Liverpool in their thrilling Champions League group stage clash made a brave and fair call.

Former Liverpool striker Crouch insists Siebert made the correct decision, believing Gimenez had dived to win the initial spot-kick following Atletico's floated free-kick into the box and the defender's tangle with Jota.

'I think he definitely dived but I thought it was slightly clumsy,' he told BT Sport. 'When he gives the penalty, I thought he's not going to overturn it. Had it been the other way around, if he hadn't give the penalty, then he sticks with that decision.

'If that was the Premier League that's what we would've seen. For him to overturn it, fair play to him in that stadium, under pressure he made the decision and stuck with it.

'It looks even more clumsy to give the penalty as he stumbles over him. It could have gone either way, for the referee to overturn it is a brave decision fair play.'

Fellow pundit Joleon Lescott was also in agreement with Crouch but the ex-Manchester City defender admitted he could see justification in the spot-kick before also hitting out at Gimenez for going down far too easily.

'I think the right decision was made. I could see why it could have been a penalty,' Lescott added.

'But when he's reviewed it, he's made a meal of it, if he goes down in a more natural way then he gives the pen.

'If he falls and collapses rather than spins and goes down less theatrical, he sticks with the decision to give the penalty. It's a strong decision by the referee and I agree with it.'
