“There was a clear opportunity to score there.”  Arshavin says referee should have sent off Spanish midfielder Rodri

Former Russian national footballer Andrey Arshavin on he said the referee should have sent the midfielder off Spain national team Rodri during the European Championship match against Croatia.

The Group B match, held in Berlin, ended with a score of 3:0 in favor of Spain. The goals were scored by Alvaro Morata, Fabian Ruiz and Dani Carvajal.

At the end of the second half, Rodri committed a foul in the penalty area. Referee Michael Oliver awarded a penalty and the Spanish midfielder received a yellow card. Croatian striker Bruno Petkovic missed the penalty, but after finishing he sent the ball into the net. The referee canceled the goal.

— I have questions about this episode. I’m not sure there was a mistake, just that one. But if you awarded a penalty, then there was a clear opportunity to score a goal. I don’t understand. An empty goal, a man standing six and a half meters away, how can the referee not show a red card? If the referee is so adamant about Perisic that he ran into the penalty area early, then blame the goalkeeper – his feet are not on the line. “I would give a red card and the goal would be counted,” Arshavin said on the air of the program “Everyone for the match!” on the channel.

In the next round, the Croatian team will meet the Albanian team on June 19, the Spaniards will face the Italians the next day.
