Gil Manzano, protagonist of the Ukraine-Italy controversy


Italy has achieved the desired classification for European Cup who suffered a goalless draw against Ukraine in Leverkusen which sends those of Revrov in repechage. The match, directed by the Spaniard Gil Manzano, was not without controversy, especially because of the possible penalty that was not signaled at the time of the injury that would change the fate of Group C.

In the 92nd minute Mudryk has gone to ground because of an alleged engagement Crystal, who arrived late to the ball. The Extremadura referee did not indicate anything the first time and then the VAR confirmed his decision after an examination of only one minute.

From the VOR room they will not call Gil Manzano so that he can see the play repeated although it is not entirely clear whether there is enough contact between the Italian central defender and the Ukrainian winger of Chelsea. Despite angry protests from the Ukrainian players and coaching staff, the match continued.

If the penalty is awarded, the fate of Group C can take a cruel turn, because if the maximum penalty is scored, Ukraine will enter the European Championship directly and send Italy to the play-off. Now it is the Ukrainians who have the option of reaching the top continental tournament through the playoffs.
