There's an old saying. It goes "Play to the whistle".
Gomes tried to award himself a free kick. He failed.

You have to question why the linesmen raised his flag or whatever but you can't blame the ref here.
Well, you probably can. He should have given a free kick rather than missing the handball/giving an advantage for an obvious handball.
But you can't blame him half as much as the keeper who tries to give himself a free kick.
