“I don’t understand the secret of this Argentine’s presence in the Euro.” The Scotland coach criticizes UEFA and the penalty kick sparks his anger after Hungary’s victory!

Scotland exits Euro 2024 with one point…

Scotland national team coach Steve Clarke criticized the European Football Association (UEFA) for choosing an Argentine referee to officiate the Hungary match, which saw the Tartan Army exit from the European Nations Cup.

The Scotland team bid farewell to the Euro 2024 competitions, after losing to Hungary 1-0, in the last round match of Group A, contenting itself with one point, which placed it at the bottom of the group that witnessed the qualification of Germany and Switzerland, and keeping Hungary’s hopes of qualifying as the best third in the round of 16.

Clarke attacked Argentine referee Facundo Tello, stressing that he had committed a refereeing error when he refused to award Stuart Armstrong a decisive penalty kick for Scotland, before Hungary scored the winning goal in the 90+10 minute, adding, “The moment of the match for me is the penalty kick incident. It is 100% penal and I want Someone explain to me why it was not counted.”

He added, “Did you talk to the referee? What’s the point? He’s from Argentina, why isn’t he a European referee? I’m trying to be smart, but I don’t know. I don’t understand why he is here and not in his country to officiate a match, and how could (VAR) look at that shot.” He says it’s not a penalty kick.”

The Scotland coach continued, “If we had gotten that penalty kick, tonight could have been different. I have other words, but I will not use them. Perhaps it would have been better for the referee to be European in a European tournament, but we had European video technology. Perhaps the referee did not see the incident.” Clearly on the pitch, but what is the purpose of the VAR if you don’t intervene in something like this?”

Clark commented on Scotland’s exit from the Euro, saying, “It was a difficult night. We feel sad like the fans. We wanted to perform well for our country, but unfortunately it was not our night. In the end, we scored only two goals in that tournament, and one goal in the last edition.” “I have to talk to my coaches to work on something in the future about how to score more goals at certain times in matches.”
