The kick of Muscovites midfielder Alexander Samedov, goalkeeper of the “Zenith” Kamil Chontofalski repelled his feet, but Alexander Sheshukov finished the ball into the net. However, Maly did not count the goal, considering that the guests ’footballers entered the penalty area after breaking a penalty even before Samadov hit.

Penalties for the match Lokomotiv - Zenit April 7, 2012
Roman Shishkin went on the flank, filed into the penalty area, where Pavlyuchenko didn’t get to the ball, but flew to Caichedo, who earned the ball with one touch, and he only had to nod his head at the empty net, but Tomas Gubochan scooped the ball from the goal line, taking off most from the head of Felipe. The match lasted about a minute, until the side judge gave the order to stop the game and put a penalty. Eduard Maly listened to the opinion, but for some reason did not begin to remove Gubochan.
Roman Shirokov, Zenit midfielder, when asked why the red card was not shown to Tomas Gubochan (Lokomotiv - Zenit 0: 1): This is surprising. If a penalty is awarded, then there should be a red card.
Sergei Khusainov, a former FIFA referee, about the episode with a penalty in the goal of “Zenith” (“Lokomotiv” - “Zenith” 0: 1): Maly accepted after hearing from the assistant Anton Averyanov. Anton is an experienced referee, stress-resistant. Good that he intervened. If someone else were in his place, I suppose the game would continue. It is unclear what guided Maly, without removing the player, “Zenith”. There, according to the game situation, there was the most natural red card. However, Gubochan did not even receive a warning.
In 2013, he decided to end his career for health reasons  .
