The referee did not bring luck to Messi to catch the match between Argentina and the Netherlands.
Messi and his teammates will receive a terrible signal when Mr. Antonio Mateu Lahoz begins the quarterfinal World Cup 2022 encounter between Argentina and the Netherlands as the referee.
Antonio Mateu Lahoz will officiate the match between Argentina and the Netherlands in the 2022 World Cup quarterfinals on December 10 at Lusail Stadium, according to official information from FIFA. The UEFA Champions League final between Chelsea and Man City in the 2020–21 season was officiated by Mr. Lahoz, a renowned referee with experience working in La Liga since 2008.
But Messi and his colleagues should not necessarily take heart from this. Because Mr. Lahoz has already been charged with favoring Messi’s rival Real Madrid while he was still playing for Barcelona. By the end of the 2020–21 campaign, Leo was still at Camp Nou, and of the five El Clasico games he officiated, Barcelona only managed to win one, draw one, and lose three.
The Cules made fun of Mr. Lahoz for being a true Madridista because of this. Even this black king once refused to acknowledge a legitimate goal by Messi in Barcelona’s game versus Atletico in the penultimate round of the 2013–14 La Liga season. The 1-1 stalemate forced the Catalan giants to suffer empty-handed that year while watching their opponents win the Liga title at home.
El Pulga has always been a legend and a representation of Barca, thus Argentine fans are concerned about the horrible incident that will happen to Messi and his colleagues.
Referee Lahoz is also renowned for being harsh and is referred to as the “King of Cards” in Spain.
He officiated 33 games, including international contests, in the previous 12 months, both at the club and national levels. Mr. Lahoz received 124 yellow and 7 red cards during this time, averaging 3.96 cards per game.
Referee Mateu Lahoz officiated two group stage matches at the 2022 World Cup, Qatar vs. Senegal and Iran vs. USA. He issued up to ten yellow cards in these two games but did not dismiss any players.
On December 10 at 2:00 a.m., Lusail Stadium will host Argentina and the Netherlands in the second 2022 World Cup quarterfinal encounter.
FIFA immediately eliminated the referee team that made a mistake at the 2022 World Cup
The 2022 World Cup is gradually coming to an end, but the controversy due to the decisions of the referees is still there. Many teams have had to complain about the black kings, despite the help of the VAR room as well as a lot of modern technology.
And recently, FIFA seems to have given the final verdict after much discussion. Accordingly, the referee team from Germany will be eliminated from the quarter-finals of the World Cup 2022, which includes Daniel Siebert and his associates.
As for Siebert, although he has 10 years of experience in the Bundesliga, he is known more probably after the controversial decision in the game Ghana vs Uruguay, which directly caused the South American representative to say goodbye to the World. Cup 2022.
Specifically, he denied a penalty for Uruguay after Edison Cavani fell in the penalty area in the final minutes of the game, despite every slow-motion angle showing that the Ghanaian defender had a clear impact. clear.
It is worth mentioning that if you get the 11m and score, it is Uruguay who will win the ticket to the 1/8 round to face Brazil instead of Korea. However, everything is in order now.
Of course, from the quarter-finals onwards, the 2022 World Cup will only have 8 matches, so the original 10 refereeing teams performing the same task is too much. However, the fact that Daniel Siebert and his associates were chosen to leave may in part be due to these controversial decisions.
That is just one of a number of wrong decisions from the referees since the 2022 World Cup began. It can be seen that it is not easy to hold the whistle for the biggest and most competitive tournament on the planet.
