Tite attacks the referee after the Brazil-Argentina match

Brazil held Argentina 0-0 in San Juan, but Brazilian manager Tite criticized the referees running the video system.

Tite believes Argentine defender Nicolas Otamendi should have been punished after an elbow in the face of winger Rafinha in the first half.

The two were pushing for the ball near the goal line, and it looked like Otamendi had nudged the Leeds United winger. Rafinha crashed but Otamendi tried to pick him up because he clearly wanted to keep playing.

Uruguayan referee Andres Cunha appeared to be receiving messages from his teammates in the video room but took no action, a decision that angered the usually calm Brazilian manager.

“Kunya is an extraordinary judge,” Titi said aloud. Refereeing requires a team and who they were in video room are impossible, and I repeat, it is impossible not to have seen Otamendi’s elbow in face to Rafinha, the VCR can’t work like that. This is unimaginable. Unthinkable is not the word I want to use. I use this word because I am polite.

However, Tite was satisfied with the result of the match in which he has had to field the smallest team since he took over the helm in 2016.

Neymar’s loss to injury led him to play an attacking line made up of Vinicius Junior, Mateus Konya and Rafinha, who have participated in just 15 international matches.

Tite told reporters: “We lost an exceptional player, Neymar, and we had to restructure the team that stood up to a player like Messi. It was a great match.” The quality of the two teams means that neither of them can dominate the game.
