What horror referee decision? , VAR has come to your rescue. Wise up. :bump:


The goal scored by Cameroon scratched off for barely nothing (if anything the Chilean was fouling more).
The offside first goal - it was minimal, but it was offside. The Chileans leg was ahead of the Cameroonian line.

And this is a trend. Remember the one-sided refereeing against Nigeria in the France game? It was blatant, yet that guy is at the Confed Cup and still refs at top level.

African teams almost always seem to be on the receiving end on game-changing bad calls. Even if there are some calls which are objectively good - like most red cards - I can't help but feel that if the tables were turned most of those harmful calls wouldn't have been made.

For a great example: Imagine France - Nigeria and Mikel hits Pogba with an elbow, Onazi slides with his studs up into Matuidi's leg or Odemwingie bearhugs Evra in the box to prevent a headed goal... I can't imagine that not ending in two reds and a penalty.

Jeez, referees are just like you and I, only human .... don't we have dodgy decisions by referees at CAN,, overtime they pan out i.e you win some, lose some, Cameroon won Olympics in 2000 despite dodgy referee against them wrt goal ruled offside, Nigeria won in 1996 despite dodgy penalty against and later controversial goal in favour. In 1994 WC, Eguavoen got Zola red carded controversially but Yekini was denied by Maldini without punishment. It happens hence the need for VAR.

Take all the big tournament game with African and list where African teams benefitted from bad calls and make another with decisions that were bad calls against them... Its a very lopsided list.

And thats without the 'higher force' of bad rules like Algeria 1982 or Ghana 2010.

This is a game where one call changes everything. Denying a properly scored goal is make or break. Similarly not awarding a deserved penalty. Nigeria vs France 2014 the Super Eagles suffered from 4 gamechanging bad calls - you can only go so far when the ref is against you. Not quite Ovrebo-level bad, but he was close.

I didn't touch upon red cards. I agree that was a bad call though, but we would have to analyze the history of African team red cards.
