Italy owes its qualification for the European Championship partly to controversial penalty moment: ‘This is a scandal’

Relief in Italy after a ticket for the European Championship was won with pain and difficulty on Monday evening. Partly thanks to a controversial decision by the arbitration. Deep into injury time, Ukraine screamed for a penalty when Bryan Cristante appeared to tackle his opponent Mychajlo Moedryk. However, referee Jesús Gil Manzano waved the incident away, leaving the score 0-0 and Italy taking the necessary point.
