  1. You forget about the barsa scandal at Chelsea's house and the “robontada” of the same against PSG. Two of the biggest embarrassments in European football.

  2. Interesting also see the quarterfinal match in the Olympics of 92 in Barcelona when they annulled a nonexistent offside goal for Italy against Spain

  3. You forget the penalty invented in the final of the world italy 90, codesal criminal mark that is not and they expel sensini

  4. And the World Cup final 1990 and the penalty that never existed with which Germany won, against Argentina, a dispossession and an embarrassment for football. In 2006 in the quarters again Germany was favored when Klose took Abondansieri out of the game with one leg and did not see the red card, minutes later tied the game. And what about the German goalkeeper's penalty against Higiain in the 2014 final... and so keep checking that there is more .
