There will be controversy for a while, surely more in Germany than in England, after the Borussia Dortmund was eliminated in the round of 16 against Chelsea for a penalty scored by Kai Havertz which was previously ordered to be repeated after having failed.

The play began with some controversy. In a cross into the area, the players of the Chelsea they protested that Wolf had touched the ball with his hand, something that was evident in the replays and that led the referee Danny Mackelie by pointing to the fateful spot after watching the replays.

Yes, that was traumatic, but that is what came after. Kai Havertz, after making a feint, fooled Alexander Meyer but had the misfortune to send his shot against the post. The ball was rejected and was cleared by a Dortmund player, which seemed to have been round, but once again the VAR called the order and sent him to repeat, so that he scored this time yes Havertz.
