Argentina has a reason to complain about the referee
Former Barca striker believes that Messi and his team-mates deserve to receive two penalties in the defeat to Brazil in the Copa America semi-final 2019.
Of course, Argentina has a reason to complain. Brazil is having a better squad than Argentina and certainly, Tite’s army can win without the referee’s mistakes. But the two Argentine balls deserved a penalty but VAR did not intervene, Rivaldo said
Brazil overcame Argentina rivals in the Copa America semi-finals thanks to Gabriel’s goals and Roberto Firmino. However, the players and the Argentine coach thought they were being told by the referee. The Argentine newspaper also pointed out two situations that should be awarded to the home team.
I said a long time ago: I do not believe in VAR. It hurts football with too many stops and only benefits the referee. People can now use and discharge responsibility. control the game for VAR, Rivaldo said.
The Golden Ball in 1999 argued that VAR had a worse impact on South American matches than Europe. He analyzed: If VAR ever intervened and caused trouble in European tournaments, it could even cause it more often in South America.
Rivaldo thinks that Messi will definitely win the title with Argentina if he is born with another generation. He commented: Previously, Argentina is a great team, with many excellent players. Now only Messi. So, the opponent knows that if Messi is disabled, the problem is almost solved. If Messi was born at the same time as another generation, he would get something.
Regarding the Copa final between Brazil and Peru, Rivaldo predicted: The final against Peru will be much more complicated than when we beat them 5-0 in the group stage. It will be another battle. If they are I won without Neymar, which shows the potential of Brazilian football now.
