‘It’s indefensible’: Mike Dean claims Portugal’s penalty against Ghana should have been overturned

‘It’s indefensible’: Mike Dean claims Portugal’s penalty against Ghana should have been overturned

‘I am AMAZED. It’s indefensible’: Mike Dean claims Portugal’s penalty against Ghana ‘100 per cent’ should have been cancelled, says it’s ‘scary’ VAR wasn’t involved before Cristiano Ronaldo converted the penalty

Former Premier League referee Mike Dean believes the lack of VAR intervention on Cristiano Ronaldo’s penalty against Ghana was “terrifying”.

Portugal beat Ghana 3-2 on their World Cup debut, Ronaldo scoring from the penalty spot after being fouled by Mohammed Salisu.

Many spectators did not agree with the decision, thinking that Salisu received the ball and Ronaldo went down easily. And Dean agrees with them.

Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo won a dubious penalty against Ghana on Thursday.

‘The defender clearly plays the ball; he said he after the game. ‘Ronaldo then touches the defender’s back, falls, instigated the contact.

‘It’s not the referee’s fault, he has given the decision on the field of play. VAR, in my opinion, should have stepped in and invited the referee to take a look.

He added: ‘It’s scary, I have to say. I am amazed. I like to support refs all the time, but you can’t support things like that. You cannot defend the indefensible.

‘It should have been annulled. She should have gone to the screen, she should have looked at it.

There may have been some technical failure that we are not aware of. I just can’t figure out why it wasn’t sent to the screen.

‘100 percent is wrong.’
