The Controversial Penalty Decision in the PSG vs Newcastle United Match

Top Football Personalities Express Outrage Towards Referee’s Decision

The late penalty awarded to Paris Saint-Germain against Newcastle United has sparked anger in England. Former top strikers Gary Lineker and Alan Shearer, a club legend for The Magpies, strongly criticize the decision. They describe it as a “load of shit” and “belachelijk” (ridiculous) respectively.

After Alexander Isak scored a goal, PSG found themselves trailing at home for a significant period of time. However, deep into injury time, Valentino Livramento unintentionally handled the ball. The VAR called referee Szymon Marciniak to the screen, resulting in a penalty kick. Kylian Mbappé seized the opportunity and secured PSG’s chance for progression in the Champions League.

The penalty decision has left many in England incredulous. Lineker questions, “How on earth is that a penalty?” Likewise, Shearer describes Marciniak’s decision as “belachelijk” (ridiculous). Due to the late draw, Newcastle sits at third place in the group, two points behind PSG.

The controversial penalty decision has caused a stir in English football, leading to strong reactions from prominent figures in the sport. What are your thoughts on this decision?
