Different soccer personalities discuss and give arguments about the annotation that the center-back validated, after the ball hit his body.

“It cannot be that a referee and others in the VAR cannot see that when the ball hits the judge and influences the behavior of the players, it should be stopped and invalidated. Very bad @CONMEBOL,” said the referee analyst Rafael Sanabria.

“The Pitana thing is a shame, what a shame for Colombia!”, The ex-footballer trilled Ivan Zamorano.

“When the ball hits the referee … the game must be cut off if the ball changes possession of the team … or generates a clear goal opportunity … Pitana’s terrible location but the ball goes to the point and the possession belongs to the same team”, wrote former international referee Javier Castrili.
