Rabat – The Atlas Lions, their coach, and Moroccan fans have complained of unfair arbitration on the only goal of the match for Portugal (1-0), which could have been canceled due to a fault made by Cristiano Ronaldo.
Nordin Amrabat, attacking winger, who was named Man of the Match by many supporters and media has taken issue with the referee’s behaviour in a game that will send Morocco out of the World Cup after the group stage.
On American referee Mark Geiger, Amrabat said: “On field, he was really impressed by Ronaldo.”
“When I walked by [Portugal’s] Pepe, I heard him say that the referee has asked for Cristiano Ronaldo’s jersey during the first period. But, frankly, who are we kidding? We’re at the World Cup, it’s not a circus here.”
Nordin Amrabat, who suffered a head injury during the Iran-Morocco game, showed the full extent of his talent with his fabulous attacking skills, showing great determination to make history again.
On social media, fans called him “the Warrior” as he largely overshadowed Portugal’s Ronaldo in the game.
If the accusations of the Moroccan prove to be true, the referee will certainly be sanctioned by FIFA for breaking the game’s rules.
