The Argentina team lost with a score of 0-2 against this year’s Copa America home team, Brazil, two players Gabriel Gabriel and Roberto Firmino in the match that took place on the morning of the last 3.6.
According to Argentine Labor, the match had “serious and disgusting mistakes from the referees” that were the only two ball phase Sergio Aguero and Nicolas Otamendi were fouled in the penalty area. Argentina captain Lionel Messi also expressed dissatisfaction with the referee team led by Rody Zambrano – Ecuadorian.
Messi thinks there are too many fouls but VAR has never been used at all throughout the match despite being applied in all previous Copa America matches. Argentine Labor President Claudio Tapia sent a letter to comfort and support Messi’s opinion in the post-match interview. Mr. Tapia also expressed clearly in the complaint letter to CONMBEBOL that:
“It is unreasonable to not use VAR in two situations and it has affected the game.”
He also expressed “doubts about morality, honesty and transparency” during the last defeat of Argentina.
Brazil is also accused by the Argentina FA of Brazil taking advantage of the Copa America to benefit its political image. Specifically, Mr. Jair Bolsonaro – Brazil’s new national president had a welcome screen for fans in the middle of the time even though FIFA had stipulated political factors are not allowed to interfere in football matches.
More seriously, there was the allegation from GloboEsporte that the security of the new Brazilian president caused confusion in radio communications between the referee and the VAR in the last semi-final.
