Trouble visits Football governing body as More than 100.000 football fans sign petition for the just-ended EURO2020 finals to be replayed between England and Champions Italy.
These aggrieved fans are of the views that the referee in charge of the EURO 2020 final was biased with the intention of wanting Italy to win the encounter.
England went into this battle with the hopes of them ending their 55 years long period without lifting the trophy and they started the tie impressively netting the first goal.
Luke Shaw who plays for Manchester United put England ahead with the fans thinking that their players would score more goals in the encounter. However, Bonucci restored parity for Italy in the 67th minute and the 90 minutes of the match ended 1-1 before proceeding into penalties. In the penalty shootouts, the trio of Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka lost their penalties for Italy to win the game.
According to the report on Sportsbible, referee Bjorn Kuipers was accused of being biased by fans who want a replay of the encounter. Italian players have delivered the EURO 2020 title to their president and the whole nation is currently celebrating being the champions of Europe.
This petition comes as a surprise to many who have asked if the referee influenced the England players to lose their penalties. Nevertheless, will the football governing body address this petition, or is not worth it? Stay glued to our site as we follow this story.
