This afternoon, Paris Saint-Germain traveled to RC Lens, and manager Thomas Tuchel made his selections without the services of Brazilian winger Neymar Jr. Pochettino and his Tottenham Hotspur team were unable to secure all three points against RC Lens on Monday night, as the game ended in a tie. Wijnaldum's late equalizer saves the day, despite the unfortunate result of the match. In this article, I will demonstrate to you why the VAR made the incorrect judgement and why Lionel Messi should not be made the scapegoat for his actions.
Because the VAR made the incorrect decision,
In my opinion, the goal scored by Lens should not have counted because Lionel Messi was fouled in the process of scoring it. Looking at the image below, it can be seen that the Lens player fouled Lionel Messi as the Argentine forward attempted to create opportunities before sending the ball to his teammate. Following the reception of the ball by Lionel Messi, he was fouled, and the referee refused to stop the game until Seko Fofana scored a spectacular goal from outside the box. Nobody can change the outcome of the VAR's decision, and no one can force them to do so, but I don't believe they made the proper decision. We all know that Lionel Messi is not the type of player who is easily knocked out of his stride. The Argentine captain remained on the ground until Seko Fofana scored the game's first goal late in the second half.
Why Lionel Messi Shouldn't Be Made a Victim of the Football World Cup (4 Shots And 2 Chances Created)
After Lionel Messi was fouled and Lens scored the winning goal, it's possible that the crowd exploited him as a scapegoat. As I was watching the game tonight, it was clear that Lionel Messi contributed to the success of the team. He created two good chances and took four shots, all of which went wide of the target. His first shot was deflected away by the crossbar, and I believe he was unlucky on this occasion.
Which way do you lean on this issue?
