“The ball hit the leg and then the hand. Here, in South America, the rule is not enforced. Absolutely zero intent. It wasn’t a penalty. In South America, we are looking to transform a football with no arms. The arms need to be tied to the body. Of course it wasn’t a penalty. In less than 24 hours, it was the third move that unabashedly favored a Brazilian team in the Libertadores. There was the move that benefited Fluminense against Cerro, in addition to Boca’s badly disallowed goal over Atlético-MG. Palmeiras didn’t play anything! What starts to get weird is the favoring of Brazilian teams in the competition, and there is a Brazilian coordinator in charge of refereeing there. So, it needs to be fixed”, fired the commentator.
