Qatar 2022: FIFA asked to review refereeing decisions in Morocco’s 2-0 defeat to France

The Moroccan football federation (FMRF) has submitted a complaint to FIFA about the refereeing for their 2-0 defeat to France in the 2022 World Cup semi-final.

The Atlas Lions are furious they didn’t get a penalty when Sofiane Boufal tumbled in the box in the first half.

Referee Cesar Ramos instead booked Boufal for a foul on Theo Hernandez.

They were also not happy about Ramos’ refusal to act when Selim Amallah was brought down in the second half.

“The FMRF has written to the relevant body to review the refereeing decisions that deprived the Moroccan team of two penalties that were indisputable in the view of several refereeing specialists.

“The FMRF was equally astonished that the video assistant referee (VAR) did not react to these situations,” the FMRF said in a statement confirming their complaint.

Hernandez and Randal Kolo Muani scored for the defending champions, who will now face Argentina in Sunday’s final.
