http://theifab.com/laws/fouls-and-misconduct-2018/chapters/disciplinary-action-2018: Where a player commits an offense against an opponent within their own penalty area which denies an opponent an obvious goal-scoring opportunity and the referee awards a penalty kick, the offender is cautioned if the offense was an attempt to play the ball; in all other circumstances (e.g. holding, pulling, pushing, no possibility to play the ball etc.) the offending player must be sent off.

With the rule change, a straight red to me would be a push or a handball or clip of the back heel type of offense. I thought he slid between his legs trying to play the ball. Like Border Gopher said, I didn’t think it was cynical.
