Germany is still furious. National team was beaten in the quarter-finals of “its” Euro by Spain (2-1, aet) at the end of a thrilling extra time which saw Mikel Merino score the winning goal for the RojaFriday July 5. But it was above all two decisions by Mr. Taylor, the referee in charge of supervising the match, which caused controversy.

Two penalties not awarded for Germany?

First, there was the clash between central defender Nacho and German striker Niklas Füllkrug (77′), which could have resulted in a penalty. The second was the obvious handball by left-back Marc Cucurella in the box on a shot by Jamal Musiala that seemed to be on target, in extra time when the two teams were tied. On this action, the error by the English official, who did not call on video assistance and let the game resume immediately on a touchline, was flagrant. All that remained was to check, thanks to VAR, a potential offside by Füllkrug at the start of the action, and a control with the lower shoulder of the Dortmund striker.

In any case, Mr. Taylor’s decision has driven the German population crazy. A petition on the Change.org platform has already collected more than 377,000 signatures at the time of writing, this Monday, July 8 at 9 a.m. In the end, it is indeed the Roja who will face the Blues for a place in the final of the competition.
