The Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) has strongly protested, in a letter addressed to the FIFA, against the refereeing of the Morocco-France semi-final match, officiated by the Mexican referee, Cesar Arturo Ramos Palazuelos.
Fans, international refereeing and sports experts from around the world criticized harshly Cesar Ramos for his “biased” and “unfair” decisions that deprived the Atlas Lions of two obvious penalties. They also condemned the fact that referees watching the var failed to alert the referee.
The Royal Moroccan Football Federation said in a statement published on its website that it will spare no effort to defend the rights of the Moroccan national team, demanding fairness in taking the necessary measures against the refereeing injustice practiced against the Moroccan team.
The FRMF specified in the letter the cases where the Moroccan team was “deprived of two clear penalties, according to the testimony of Refereeing experts.”
The federation also said they were “surprised” that the VAR room did not bring those situations to the referee’s attention.
