Luis Rubiales, president of the Royal Spanish Football Federation, has shown his face after the famous error in execution during the match between Real Madrid and Athletic Club, corresponding to the semifinals of the European Championship in Spain. The Andalusian has asked forgiveness: «The positive part is that, after reviewing it, it seems that it is not a penalty».
In the last minute of the game, Nacho hung a ball into the area that Unai Nuñez cleared with his right shoulder. Immediately afterwards, Marco Asensio asked for a penalty in a play that the VAR began to review when the ball went out the end line. However, the realization was his: offered viewers another set of the game, one of Sergio Ramos a few seconds after the action of Unai Nuñez. Finally, the VOR room told the referee that there was nothing, while the television continued broadcasting another play.
Speaking to Deportes Cuatro, Luis Rubiales acknowledged the error of the meeting: «It was not seen and it was an error that it was not seen, it should have been seen live. The positive part is that, after reviewing it, it seems that it is not a penalty, “said the president of the RFEF.
«I don’t usually talk about these things, but It is true that it should have been issued and that it was a failure to perform. When you do something wrong, you have to apologize. Hiding it is silly, I wish it was seen at that time. You have to be self-critical, analyze the error and improve, “he concluded.
