Karasev sentenced the Dutch? Removal from the Russian referee decided the fate of the game with the Czech Republic
The first controversial decision of our referee on Euro? Analysis by Igor Fedotov.
In the third quarterfinals of the European Championship, the Netherlands national team played with the Czech Republic. The Dutch were the favorites of the match (and someone considered them to be one of the favorites of the entire tournament), while in Russia the fans of Spartak should have had a particular interest in the game. The match between the national teams of the Netherlands and the Czech Republic is not only an interesting game, but also a confrontation between the red and white players: Alexa Krala and Quincy Promesa… And the rest of our fans could cheer for Sergey Karasev – the Russian referee, who before this match had an impeccable tournament.
“Karasev goes to the final.” It seems that Russia has someone to be proud of at this Euro
It was Karasev who became one of the main characters of the game. In the 55th minute, for a foul near the Netherlands penalty area, he showed the defender de Ligt a yellow card, but after watching the replay he changed his mind and left the Dutch with ten men. Arbitrator Igor Fedotov, who continues to develop his YouTube channel, analyzed this episode:
“The Dutchman has been shown a red card in connection with the case,” Fedotov said. – It’s normal that Karasev did not see the moment himself, that he showed yellow. Then, on the replay, we saw that the defender was deliberately raking the ball with his hand, this was not an accident. He prevented going one-on-one. “
“Karasev is bought!” The Dutch are furious at the decision of the Russian judge
At the same time Fedotov does not think that the judge was grossly mistaken: “The moment is not easy for Karasev, but it is good that he saw the violation in principle. I would not say that he was seriously mistaken: only on the replay it is clear that the defender raked the ball with his hand. As for the next moment with viewing VAR on the 11-meter, this is garbage, there is nothing to discuss there. ”
After the Czechs began to play in the majority, they scored twice against the Netherlands and sensationally advanced to the quarterfinals of the tournament.
Have the Dutch been knocked out by the Russians again? Karasev is the protagonist of the Euro playoffs
