Uh, no. You should rewatch that. He clearly takes the Spanish player's heel and none of the ball.
He definitely hit his heel, but it definitely looked light enough that the Spanish player could have easily stayed standing and not go down screaming.

The call is fine, but dude's still a lil bitch

Oh sure, but if he stays up then he runs the risk of not getting the call. It's still a foul and an obvious penalty, he just didn't need to scream about it.

Which is also why it’s hard to take these guys seriously sometimes
Oh no doubt. The amount of rolling and crying that some of them do after minimal contact should be embarrassing for a full grown man. But if you don't go down with the contact there then you run the risk of the referee missing a very obvious foul, and a 90% certainty of a goal.

Yup I hate the perverse incentive to flop, soccer’s worst feature for the casual fan
