Conmebol broadcast the audios of the play that could change the game that Argentina won in Lima. There was “pressure” to punish an offense against Christian Cueva.
It could be the play that changed the match between Peru and the Argentine National Team, which ended up winning 2-0 in Lima. With the game 0-0, Christian Cueva advanced the ball and fell after crossing the path of Franco Armani. For its part, Wilmar Roldán did not sanction an infraction, but was called and “pressured” by the VAR.
The controversy broke out after Conmebol released the video of the conversation between the referee and the VAR judges. The Colombian Andrés Rojas (who will be the main judge in Paranaense-River for the Copa Libertadores) considered that there was an infraction by Armani, but Roldán remained firm in his determination.
When they showed him the action, he considered corroborated what he had seen in the first instance: that Armani had already put his leg in a position and the Peruvian went towards it to crash.
The dialogue between the judges:
AVAR: Possible penalty, possible penalty.
Roldan: For me it is due to the action of the game, he takes it running and the crash is inevitable.
AVAR: There is a crash says. Wilmar, please don’t resume, don’t resume, don’t resume …
WHERE: Very slowly, there is a leg there.
AVAR: Wilmar, don’t resume, don’t resume. We see another angle.
Roldan: He touches the ball and then takes it running, and they collide; the crash is inevitable.
WHERE: I do not see action from Armani foot to avoid the passage of the game.
AVAR: I see a violation here.
AVAR: Make the signal, Wilmar.
WHERE: Is the offside clean? Let me see the offside when he threw the ball.
WHERE: It is correct, it is enabled, I want to see the APP (Atacking Possession Phase or attack phase with ball possession). Hit play, perfect.
WHERE: I want to see here … Play the ball slowly, show me the contact, in the race it crashes, the contact is here.
