This one was truly odd I thought. He went down but not a single person, including Izzet, seemed to complain. He got up and for a split second seemed content to walk away until he saw the ref pulling the card. I really don't see how that decision can be given; if a card is given without even a hint of protest then players risk being booked/sent off for simply tripping over their own feet.
