The Netherlands and Argentina clashed in the quarter-finals of the World Cup. Argentina team won this match. Matthew Lahouze, who refereed the match, awarded a total of 19 yellow cards to both teams. This created tension between the two teams. Argentinian teammate Messi got into an argument with the referee. FIFA has also set up an inquiry committee for this. It has been reported that the Spanish referee has returned home from Qatar and will not participate in the semi-finals and finals. Also, out of the four referees in charge of the World Cup quarter-finals, three referees were not selected by FIFA for the semi-finals.
The Portuguese team was eliminated in the quarter-finals of the World Cup. The win not only worried football fans around the world, but Ronaldo fans as well. Having played in the 2006, 2010, 2014, 2018 and 2022 World Cup series, Ronaldo bid farewell to his World Cup dream without scoring a single goal in the knockout stages.
