FIFA sends home the referee who showed 18 cards

Antonio Mateu Lahoz, the controversial referee of the Argentina-Netherlands match, is returning home from Qatar. The Spanish referee showed a total of 18 cards in that quarter-final match.

At the end of the match, Lionel Messi expressed his dissatisfaction with him, “I think this FIFA referee should not be responsible for this type of match. Because he doesn’t deserve it.’

FIFA has heard about this greatest footballer of all time. Referee Lahos will not be able to officiate the remaining matches of the World Cup in Qatar. Because, FIFA does not want any controversy in the semi-final-final match. So the ‘stubborn’ referee was sent home from the World Cup by FIFA, the highest governing body of football.
