Highly criticized for his performance in the 2022 World Cup final between the France team and Argentina (3-3, 2 tab to 4), the referee of the meeting came out of silence.
A penalty that would have changed everything
The referee of this final also returned to the action of the 87th minute which could, according to some French supporters, have been sanctioned with a penalty. Marcus Thuram had finally inherited a yellow card for simulation on decision of Szymon Marciniak. Obviously, the fate of the match almost changed at this moment. The VAR referees first considered that there was a fault and therefore a penalty for the Blues before giving up on requesting a review of the images by the main referee following a more in-depth study from different angles.

His hug to Mbappé
At the final whistle, the referee of the meeting tried to comfort Kylian Mbappé, completely devastated by this cruel outcome for the Blues. “He hugged me unexpectedly.
