Should Mata's free-kick have stood?

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says it is "unbelievable" that Juan Mata's free-kick against Shrewsbury was allowed, but added that his players asked the referee in advance if it was acceptable.

Van Gaal and Mata said they had borrowed the free-kick routine from Europa League opponents FC Midtjylland.
