I agree. They should have had the equalizer from the spot, but they got it anyway. RSL didn’t look sharp to me (which I understand given the schedule) but they certainly deserved a point from the match.
Good refs make critical calls, and THEN decide if it was a correct call? Uhh, no. They don’t. Maybe this is why FIFA doesn’t give our referees many chances.
