Argentina players pursued after Szczesny – in his endeavors to guarantee a cross – connected with Messi. Referee Danny Makkelie highlighted the spot after being brought over to the VAR screen, yet Messi couldn’t accept advantage as Szcezny jumped the correct method for pushing his work clear.

Fans were left bewildered after Argentina were granted a dubious punishment in their World Cup conflict with Poland, however goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny saved Lionel Messi’s spot-kick to convey what some thought to be moment equity.

Argentina players pursued after Szczesny – in his endeavors to guarantee a cross – connected with Messi. Referee Danny Makkelie highlighted the spot after being brought over to the VAR screen, however Messi couldn’t accept advantage as Szcezny plunged the correct method for pushing his work clear.

“It seems like equity was finished to me,” said co-pundit Danny Murphy on BBC One. He depicted it as “delicate,” while Rio Ferdinand in the studio portrayed it as “a ludicrous choice”.

“At no point ever is that a punishment,” one fan composed via online entertainment. “The way that VAR after a few glances at it gets it wrong is ludicrous.”

“A fair outcome given with a fantastic Szczesny save from Messi. VAR has failed to remember football is a physical game,” said another.

“This isn’t football,” was the decision from a third, while one more referred to the choice as “the gentlest punishment in the world”. One more, in the mean time, chose to zero in on the “splendid save” from Szczesny.

“That VAR choice is one of those examples it’s passed on to the understanding of the referee,” they said. “An alternate referee would have presumably not given the punishment but rather it doesn’t make any difference now coz my monitors Wojciech had gotten his work done on Messi.”

The punishment was the second to be granted to Argentina at the 2022 World Cup. Messi changed over from the spot in the initial game against Saudi Arabia, however couldn’t rehash the accomplishment against Poland.

The 2021 Ballon d’Or winner scored two of his country’s three goals before the Poland conflict. He broke the gridlock in the must-win game against Mexico, with Enzo Fernandez adding a cherry on top against Goodbye Martino’s side.

It was the subsequent punishment save from former Arsenal goalkeeper Szczesny at this World Cup. He denied Saudi Arabia’s Salem Al-Dawsari in Poland’s subsequent gathering game, and kept out a work from Spanish forward Gerard Moreno at Euro 2020.

Just two different goalkeepers have kept out two non-shootout punishments at a similar World Cup previously. They were Poland’s Jan Tomaszewski in 1974 and the United States’ Brad Friedel in 2002.

“Disgraceful decision by VAR and onfield referee to award a penalty to Argentina,” was another view on the penalty award in Qatar. “I understand Argentina and Messi are the “sentimental favorites” to win WC, but this is no way to give a penalty in VAR era. The ball has already left Messi’s head & its only a collision afterwards.”

Messi is the first player to miss two penalties for two world cups in FOOTBALL history.
