The team of Nicolato ends up in attack and in numerical superiority for the expulsion for double yellow of Popov to the 80 'and is seen also to cancel a goal from the Var to the 92'.
In fact, Scamacca scores in turn but the referee, having consulted the Var, cancels. Decision, that of the referee, much disputed by the Azzurri.
"If it is injustice? No – replies Nicolato – the maximum of error. But I can't even say that it's a mistake. From the bench it seemed to me that it was not a foul, Scamacca had widened his arm to defend the ball and not to do it, but the referee consulted the Var and was able to review the action, so we adapt to it ”.
Thus the world dream for the blues fades. The Nicolato troop, however, will play the final for the third and fourth place against the loser of the other Ecuador-South Korea semi-final on Saturday.
