France-Denmark: Did Christensen deserve a red card for fouling Kylian Mbappe?

Mr. Szymon Marchiniak’s decision during this France-Denmark will probably get people talking. Launched by Antoine Griezmann into the depths of the counterattack in the 20th minute of the game, Kylian Mbappe, who started on goal, was kept by Andreas Christensen, practically in the position of the last defender. The man with the whistle decided to give the Danish defender a simple yellow card for this action.

Informed decision by former French referee Said Ennjimi: “He considered that there was another Danish player nearby and, therefore, this was not the last defender in front of the goalkeeper. He could see it differently because Mbappe had free rein. It must be said that if his analysis were clearly erroneous, then VAR would intervene. Therefore, there is no obvious error.

Also remember that the rules of football never mention the last defender. Indeed, under Law 12, the referee can only issue a red card if “the offender cancels a clear goal-scoring opportunity or if he makes a gesture that threatens the physical integrity of his opponent. In this action, Mr. Szymon Marchiniak decided that the error was not glaring enough to exclude the FC Barcelona defender.
