‘Colombia’s behaviour is an absolute disgrace’

first_imgThree minutes elapsed between Carlos Sanchez wrestling Harry Kane to the floor and the penalty being converted. In that time, the Colombians were surrounding the referee and scuffing up the penalty spot for good measure.It got worse from there, with every decision contested with real aggression.England fans on Twitter found the whole thing rather distasteful. Here are the best tweets: Colombia are somewhat disconnected from the plot right now.— AS English (@English_AS) July 3, 2018 Seems Colombia players could physically assault the Ref and still not get sent off. Awful ‘men’.— Simon Phillips (@SiPhillipsSport) July 3, 2018 Colombians surround the ref Colombia are a disgrace. Start yellow carding them. Ref has lost control.— Gary Webster (@RealGaryWebster) July 3, 2018 1 Ref has lost control of this match completely, Colombia behaving disgracefully— DELTΔ HEΔVY (@DeltaHeavyUK) July 3, 2018 The poor referee.Mark Geiger was not given a moment’s peace in England’s last-16 clash against Colombia. Ref needs to get a hold of this game, Colombia’s behavior is an absolute disgrace.— Gary Whitta (@garywhitta) July 3, 2018 This is ridiculous. Every one of Colombia’s players heads have gone. Fouls everywhere, surrounding the ref and berating him because they can’t deal with England. Horrible game to referee. #COLENG #WorldCup— UNILAD Football (@UNILADFooty) July 3, 2018 This is quite disgraceful from Colombia and the ref needs to take control.— Jon 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 🦁 (@Melbourne_Red) July 3, 2018 Can’t believe Colombia just gave up after 3 minutes of arguing with the ref. I think he was just about to change his mind.— Ben Higgins (@BenHigginsSD) July 3, 2018 The state of Colombia.. now deliberately scuffing up the penalty spot.— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) July 3, 2018 Anyone else see the Colombia player grinding up the penalty spot with his foot while arguing with the ref?— Nick Wing (@nickpwing) July 3, 2018 talkSPORT are with listeners all day and all night at this year’s 2018 FIFA World Cup™ with more than 800 hours of World Cup content and all 64 games live across the talkSPORT network.last_img read more
