Did the judges help them? The German suddenly took out his phone and showed it

An unexpected situation occurred after the Germany-Hungary match. The hosts’ attacker got into an exchange of words with one of the journalists. At one point he said: “now let me show you something.”

The hosts of Euro 2024  – were the first from the entire group – to guarantee themselves promotion to the 1/8 finals. The Germans defeated the Hungarians  2-0, thanks to the goals of Jamal Musiala  and Ilkay Gundogan .

The Hungarians had a lot of grudge against the referee because, when the score was 1-0, Gundogan fouled Willi Orban . The situation was checked by VAR, but in the end the decision was not changed. The coach of the Hungarian national team – Marco Rossi  – did not hide his outrage. He said that “Germans don’t need help.”

After the match, in the so-called mix-zone (mixed zone where footballers give interviews to journalists), the discussion on this topic has returned. One of the Hungarian journalists asked for a comment on the referee’s decision of the German team’s striker, Niclas Fuellkrug .

In response, the German… pulled out his phone. – Now let me show you something – he said.

He displayed a photo on the smartphone screen showing the situation from the second half. It was clearly visible how the above-mentioned Orban was pushing Fuellkrug in an air fight. In this situation, the referee also did not notice the foul. According to the striker, this is proof that the referee allowed tough, manly play. On the verge of foul.

– Playing with the body is not prohibited – he explained. – Ilkay isn’t the biggest or strongest guy, but he can use his body. There is nothing to discuss. These are not, both!, situations in which the referee should react.

In the last round of the group phase, Germany will face the Swiss (23/06, 9 p.m.), and the Hungarians will face the Scots (also 23/06, 9 p.m.).
