Japanese public opinion’s ‘shock defeat’ made absurd remarks, saying, “Middle East referee’s judgment is biased against Middle East.”

Some Japanese fans claim that the referee made a biased judgment for Iraq.

Japan (ranked 17th in FIFA) lost 1-2 in its second Group D match against Iraq (ranked 63rd in FIFA) in 2023 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) held at Education City Stadium in Al-Rayan, Qatar, at 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday (Korea time). Japan has become No. 2 in the group, and Iraq has become No. 1 in the group.

Japan showed off its poor performance. Goalkeeper Suzuki Zaion, who had revealed his anxiety since the match against Vietnam, was shaken again in the fourth minute of the first half, providing an excuse for allowing the first run. Japan’s cute pass play and quick change of offense from the side did not come out at all.

From the middle of the first half, Kubo Takefusa and Minamino Takumi survived little by little, but it was not enough to break Iraq’s solid defense. Rather, Iraq’s intermittent counterattack was more efficient, and Iraq scored an additional goal in the extra time of the first half.

In the second half, Japan tried to turn around by replacing a large number of its main resources, but the finishing was a problem. Endo Wataru’s comeback goal in the extra time of the second half saved Japan’s pride a little. 헤라카지노도메인

According to Japan’s “Yahoo,” complaints about the referee’s decision are pouring in in Japan. One of the reactions introduced by the media was a strange suspicion that “the match was held by both the referee and the deputy referee.” Some fans responded, “The referee was also the enemy” and “Why is the Middle East referee in charge of the match against the Middle East?”

The scene where the fans were angry came out in the 11th minute of the second half. Asano fell heavily while Levine Sulaka was defending Takuma Asano. The referee ruled a penalty kick. However, after communicating with the VAR judges, on-field reviews were conducted, and the penalty decision was repeated.

The reason was clearly visible. Sulaka did not tackle Takuma, but defended neatly, hitting only the ball. It was too much to say that Sulaka pushed from behind. Overall, there were no factors to be considered as biased judgment.
