Watch: Penalty Decision That Shifted All-Ireland Final In Dublin's Favour

Confounding pre-match expectations, Tyrone led Dublin by 0-5 to 0-2 when the first significant decision of the opening half had to be made.

Surprisingly wasteful from the off, Dublin were handed a lifeline when Paul Mannion was adjudged to have been fouled in the box.

Referee Conor Lane immediately signaled for the penalty, sparking numerous complaints from the aggrieved Tyrone defenders.

Allowing Dublin the chance to level up proceedings, there was much consternation among viewers regarding whether or not the penalty ought to have be awarded at all.

Despite certain viewers' misgivings, others were certain Lane had come to the correct decision.

Dutifully stepping up to take the spot-kick himself, Paul Mannion finished it with aplomb to give Dublin a foothold in the game.

From there, Jim Gavin's men started to deliver on the pre-match expectations, and, by half-time, they were leading Tyrone 2-7 to 0-6.
