The last minutes of the match between Saudi Arabia and Oman, in the Asian Cup, were marked by a moment… worthy of those who caught it. With the match tied (1-1) at the 90+5 minute, Saudi Arabia equalized the score at 2-1 with a header from Al-Bulayhi. Initially, the referee indicated offside with the help of VAR, a decision that the Saudi players immediately objected to. At the signal, the match referee raises his arm, as if indicating offside, and then corrects, pointing at this second moment to the midfield mark. The players of both teams carried a picture of the referee with his arm raised above their heads and continued the match. Until the referee is forced to correct his indicator and award a goal for Saudi Arabia, which will go on to win the match in a very dramatic way.
The Saudi team scored in the 95th minute, and the ruling was immediately canceled for offside, as confirmed by VAR, and the match continued. But the referee stops the match again and scores the goal. #sporttvportugal #Asia Cup #Asia Cup #Japan #Vietnam pic.twitter.com/e3iPfTeHkp– Sports TV (@sporttvportugal) January 16, 2024
