Iturralde González analyzes the most bizarre arbitration scandal in the history of the Africa Cup

The referee in charge of whistling the Tunisia-Mali of the Africa Cup held in Cameroon has been the protagonist on social networks. The referee William Sikazwe, from Zambia, whistled the end of the game when the clock barely ticked the 85th minute, with a favorable result of 0-1 for the visitors. After the subsequent anger of the Tunisian coach, the match resumed, but the referee again signaled the end in the 89th minute.

The arbitration scandal has become popular through social networks in Spain, and Iturralde González resolved in El Larguero all the doubts about what could happen to the Zambian referee.

“It’s the fourth millennium. First in the 84th minute and then in the 89th minute. Likewise, Tunisia has problems because they have not wanted to go out on the field again. It is an inexplicable thing. Neither the assistants nor the fourth official. What happens to a person ok, but … the assistants and the VAR don’t have a clock? And then in 89 you do the same thing again and nobody notices?

For the referee of Carrusel Deportivo and El Larguero, the cause of the confusion or failure is the lack of discipline that exists in the African committees. In addition, he revealed one of the last conversations he had on the subject: “I do not contemplate that it is corruption. In Africa very strange things happen with the referees. They are lazy to run, they are lazy to train. A lot of indiscipline. I met with a person in December because he wanted to change that in his country “,

In addition, Iturralde González joked with the latest controversy that Real Madrid has starred in: “If Real Madrid Televisión has to make a video of the African referees, they will not fit the video even in 8,000 days”
