Japan midfielder Keisuke Honda has slammed referee Abdulrahman Hussain and accused the Qatari of officiating Japan’s opening 4-0 win over 10-man Palestine at the Asian Cup on Monday “like a basketball game.”

The AC Milan attacker claims the level of refereeing at the Asian Cup is not up to scratch, even though Hussain handed Palestine five yellow cards, awarded Japan a penalty and sent off defender Ahmed Mahajna.
