With Argentine captain Messi scoring the first goal with a penalty kick in the first half and semi-finals, he defeated Croatia 3-0 and won the Qatar World Cup final. The ball tied the historical record, and the referee's penalty kick also attracted a lot of controversy.
In the history of the World Cup, there are 2 teams with 4 penalty kicks , that is Portugal in the 1966 World Cup and the Netherlands in the 1978 World Cup.
However, the previous two national teams scored all 4 penalty kicks, and Messi only scored 3 goals in 4 penalty kicks on behalf of Argentina in this World Cup , one of which was conceded in the group match against Poland. The 32-year-old goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny made a block.
However, Argentina's penalty kicks in this World Cup have aroused many debates and doubts.
Argentina won a penalty kick against Saudi Arabia in the opening game of the group stage. Although they scored a goal, they ended up winning 1-2 against Saudi Arabia.
After that, Argentina and Poland won a penalty kick in the closing game of the group stage. Although Messi failed to score, the team still won 2-0.
Later, in the top 8 match against the Netherlands, Messi scored a penalty kick to expand the score 2-0. Although the Netherlands eventually equalized the score, they eventually lost to Argentina in the penalty shootout. And that game also had the largest conflict in this World Cup. After the game, both teams were furious. Messi, in particular, changed his usual mild and low-key mood and scolded the Dutch coaching staff after the game.
It is worth mentioning that after that game, some Dutch players also believed that more than 4 referees in this game were from Argentina, and believed that their law enforcement ability and position had seriously deviated. He also sarcastically threatened that because of the help of the referee, Argentina will definitely win the World Cup, implying that FIFA has made Argentina the current World Cup champion.
In the process of Argentina and Croatia competing for the final seat, Argentina won the fourth penalty kick in this World Cup, which allowed Messi to score a penalty kick to help the team open the scoring. What happened was that Croatia's 27-year-old goalkeeper Dominic Livakovic, defending on the edge of the six-yard box, collided with the attacking 22-year-old Argentine striker Julian Alvarez before Argentina was awarded a penalty. .
However, after the game, Croatia's 37-year-old captain Luka Modric expressed dissatisfaction with the referee's decision. He criticized the Italian referee Daniele Rosatu who awarded Argentina a penalty in the first half and said that the point The ball decision changed the entire game, and he also called Rosatu one of the "worst" referees he knew.
In addition, the famous England star Gary Neville also believes that the referee should not award this penalty as a penalty, because the Croatian goalkeeper Livakovic did not rush forward, but the offensive Argentine player Alvarez himself. There will be a collision, and there should be no penalty kick at all.
Former England player Ian Wright and Ireland's Roy Keane also agreed with Neville's views, and said that the referee made the decision without watching the VAR test.
The outside world is also discussing and speculating that according to Argentina's 4 World Cup penalty kicks so far, it is likely to get a penalty kick from the referee in the final and finally win this Hercules Cup.
