tto Addo, the head coach of Ghana, has criticized the Cristiano Ronaldo penalty decision in the wake of his team’s 3-2 World Cup loss to Portugal on Thursday.
In the second half of the game, Mohammed Salisu, a defender, brought down Cristiano Ronaldo.
The ex-Manchester United forward then took the penalty shot.
After the match, Addo criticized American referee Ismail Elfath for awarding Portugal the penalty.
“Everyone saw that the referee gave a penalty that wasn’t a penalty. Why? Considering that Ronaldo or something? Informed beIN Sport, Addo
“I believe you should consult the referee. I can’t back that up. When asked if he thought the foul was called because it was Ronaldo, Addo responded, “We were playing the ball, and then there was contact.
“I’m not sure if the VAR was paying attention or if they weren’t paying attention.
“If you watch the replay, the foul was committed against us even though we played the ball.
“Congratulations if someone scores a goal. But in reality, this was a gift.
“Until the punishment, anything was possible. The game then became somewhat erratic.
The following game for Ghana is on Monday against South Korea.
