The star of the show on Friday night Spanish referee Mateu Lahorz has been sent home from the tournament and won’t referee another game at the World Cup.
Probably a fair call after the referee handed out a load of yellow cards and we saw more of him, rather than football.
“Tbh this World Cup is rigged… they want to do anything possible for Messi to win it but God has the final say”-fan comments,
This will be music to the Argentine player’s ears as some of the players were hugely critical of the match official after the match. FIFA has now taken the option to get rid of the Spanish referee, the pressure that these officials are under is immense and it’s right that FIFA has the right men for the job.
It’s going to make for a cracking final three games.
