Morocco sensationally eliminated Portugal from the World Cup in Qatar. After the match, the leaders of the Iberian Peninsula team did not leave a dry thread on the arbitrator of the match. FIFA may punish them for these outrageous words.
Morocco’s expensive national team at the World Cup in Qatar is delighting fans around the world. The team from Africa is playing sensationally and deservedly reached the semifinals of the World Cup. However, not everyone agrees.
According to the stars of the Portuguese national team, which succumbed to the North African team in the quarterfinals, this beautiful adventure is possible only because of the attitude of the referees. Especially got Facundo Tello, who officiated Sunday’s meeting.
Pepe said outright that it was a scandal to appoint an Argentine referee at a time when the country’s national team is still playing in the tournament. He even suggested that, in this case, the winner of the tournament is already known (more HERE).
He was echoed by Bruno Fernandes. The Manchester United midfielder also complained about the presence of an Argentine arbitrator in the World Cup quarterfinal match.
– “I don’t care about anything; I’ll say what I think. It’s very strange that our meeting was refereed by an arbitrator from a country that is still competing. Apparently, he did everything to prevent us from advancing,” The Sun quotes the Portuguese.
According to the British daily, it can be expected that FIFA will investigate these words regarding Facundo Tello’s work and the work of referees in general. This could result in the suspension of both players for future national team matches.
