F39 - Movement in Seville throw-in vs Liverpool

Sport: Football Category: Movement
Submitted by: Anonymous
Context:

In the Europa Cup Final of 2016 Seville get a throw-in about 5m inside their own half.  The Seville full back, Escudero, gathers the ball, while walking downfield, keeps going, and going, until the actual throw-in is taken about 15m from where it should have been taken! 

Outcome:

This sort of cheating has become so commonplace in soccer that nobody seems to object to such movement of the restart closer to the defending team's goal and the throw-in is allowed.  It came to nothing and the score remained 0-0.  In the end Seville ran out 3-1 winners to win the trophy for the third consecutive year but how is this sort of cheating allowed?!  Imagine the uproar in a game of rubgy or American Football if the game were restarted 15m from where it should have been, to the advantage of the attacking team?!
