Espana midfielder, Sergio Busquets, has criticised referee Anthony Taylor next his side’s UEFA Nations League final defeat against French Republic on Sun.
Busquets slammed Taylor’s choice to allow Kylian Mbappe’s belatedly winner in French Republic’s 2-1 win against Espana.
French Republic defeated Espana next goals from Karim Benzema and Mbappe.
Mikel Oyarzabal did score for Sapin at San Siro.
Hernandez had slipped a pass in behind the defence for Mbappe, who slotted the ball under goalkeeper Unai Simon and wheeled absent in celebration spell Espana appealed for offside.
Replays showed that Mbappe was clearly behind the lastly man and in an offside place, but Taylor deemed that Spanish defender Eric Garcia had got a meaningful touching on the ball which created a moment stage of play.
Reacting, Busquets told Spanish television after the game, “The referee told us that Eric Garcia wanted to play the ball and that kills the offside.
“But he wanted to play the ball because the ball would have reached Mbappe who was offside! It does not create sense!”
He added: “The moment goal seemed offside to me. We pulled upwards the defensive line really good. I think Mbappe was offside.”
