Almost 200,000 Colombian fans demand FIFA review the match arbitration against England

Fans have joined a campaign launched on the Change.org website for the governing body of world football to review the performance of American Mark Geiger

Almost 200,000 Colombians fans have signed a petition on the Internet for the FIFA revise the party of the second round of the World Cup Russia 2018 between Colombia and England, as they interpret American referee Mark Geiger has wronged his team on several plays that decreed its elimination.

The campaign, started on the website Change.org , ensures that in that meeting “there were two controversial moves that were not submitted to the revision of the VAR” and asked the world football body to review these two actions to  “sit a precedent of fair play, where good play prevails, legality and guarantees for participating teams “ .

The initiative, which has collected nearly 198,000 adhesions in 24 hours , points out that the American referee was wrong to charge “penalty in favor of England for a nonexistent foul”and cancel a “legitimate goal by Carlos Bacca in a play where the referee He wrongly judged that there was illegitimacy in considering that there were two balls inside the field “ .

During the last few days a claim from some Colombian fans has also circulated on social networks because England made two changes in extra time . But the FIFA regulations say that if a match has an extension, the two teams have the possibility of making four changes , and can even make the four modifications in the 30 minutes added.

The Colombian team fell on penalties against England in Moscow and said goodbye to the 2018 World Cup in the round of 16. Four years ago, in Brazil 2014, they were defeated by the host country (2-1) in the quarterfinals and a large number of Colombian fans also blamed the collapse of that match’s referee , the Spaniard Carlos Velasco Carballo .
