Tiktukno: summary of the day's events in sports, 1.12 (Sport1)
The anger of the Uruguayan team after the early elimination from the 2022 World Cup already in the group stage, was directed mainly towards the judging team led by Daniel Siebert.
The players attacked the German at the end following two penalties that they claimed he did not give them in the 0:2 victory over Ghana, hurled a bunch of curses at him and continued to blame him even after the game.
Edinson Cavani was recorded dropping the monitor on which the referee watched his decisions and consulted the screen referees, but the one who went completely out of his way and may pay dearly for it is Jose Maria Jimenez.
The Atlético Madrid brakeman didn't stop cursing the judges: "A bunch of thieves, they're all thieves who are prostitutes. Yes, record me."
But Jimenez's rage did not stop there.
In his attempt to reach referee Siebert after the final whistle, Jimenez hit one of the FIFA representatives with his elbow and this could be significant. According to reports, this is a possible suspension for 15 games that will also affect the team's games, so this is a serious problem for Atlético Madrid as well.
"FIFA is always against us," said Luis Suarez yesterday, who mourned in tears on the bench in the last World Cup of his career. "We had to win and we did it, but we didn't depend on ourselves and we are very sad about the way it ended.
I saw from the bench that 'Eddie' was fouled and the offense on Darwin Nunes was also clear.
We won, but we are very sad and disappointed, that's the bottom line."
