More than 300,000 people are asking online for the Spain-Germany match to be replayed due to refereeing decisions

More than 300,000 people have joined an online petition to have the Euro 2024 quarter-final between Spain and Germany replayed, in which Spain won 2-1 in extra time, due to alleged refereeing errors, including the handball claimed by the Germans by Marc Cucurella inside the box. The person responsible for the petition on the website change.org, Erik V, explained that his movement is in response to several erroneous decisions by English referee Anthony Taylor during Friday’s match that Spain won 2-1 in extra time. The main error, according to this online petition, occurred when a shot on goal by Jamal Musiala hit Cucurella’s hand inside the box already in extra time and with the score at 1-1. Taylor did not award a penalty and the VAR did not warn him to intervene. The move sparked much debate but UEFA made it clear that incidents such as Cucurella’s, where the arm is not in an unnatural position and is moving towards the body, would not be punishable. The petition had been signed by some 315,000 people by Sunday morning, although it is purely symbolic. Spain face France in the semi-finals on Tuesday, while England and the Netherlands battle for the final on the other side of the draw.
