The Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) filed an objection to FIFA, claiming that it was disadvantaged by the referee’s unreasonable decision during the FIFA World Cup semi-finals in Qatar.
FRMF said on the 16th (Korean time), “We have submitted a document to FIFA that will contain the fact that we were unfairly judged in the semi-final match against France.”
Morocco, who reached the semifinals for the first time in the African continent and Arab countries, lost 0-2 against France in the semifinal held in Alcor, Qatar on the 15th and was pushed back to the third and fourth place.
The scene FRMF took issue with came in the 27th minute when the score was 0-1. At the time, Moroccan winger Sufjan Bupal (Angers SCO, left) ran into the opponent’s penalty box to catch the ball that flowed out, and the right foot of Theo Hernandez (AC Milan, 〃 right), the French wingback and the first scorer, got caught. I fell. Then, referee Cesar Arturo Ramos from Mexico pulled out a yellow card and declared a foul against Bupal, and the Moroccan bench, who expected a penalty kick, was devastated.
FRMF pointed out, “We strongly protest against referee Ramos’ decision,” and pointed out, “It is very surprising that VAR was not conducted in this situation.
“We urge FIFA to mediate fairly while taking necessary measures against unfair decisions that occurred in the semi-finals,” he said.
