“We lost to the great candidate, but in these games you need a referee who has the pants, who is fair and does not want to be the clown of the game. That does not leave sad ”, shot in the end Arturo Vidal against the Argentine referee Patricio Loustau. Lionel Messi’s former teammate in Barcelona left with all the anger after the 1-0 defeat to Brazil in the quarterfinals that marked Chile’s farewell to the Copa América.
Vidal, who had an enormous display in the duel against Verdeamarela, was left with blood in his eye due to some of Loustau’s mistakes at the Nilton Santos stadium in Rio de Janeiro.
However, beyond some debatable failures although without major consequences, the referee who represents Argentina in the continental tournament -Néstor Pitana is also present, but did not lead again after the Brazil-Colombia duel- had much more successes than errors in the carioca night.
Loustau did not hesitate to show Gabriel Jesús the red card after the flying kick that exploded against humanity by Eugenio Mena. Nor did he need the VAR to check his determination. He was also right, at the request of assistant Ezequiel Brailovsky, when he canceled the action that culminated in Eduardo Vargas’ goal. There the technology gave the right to the sight of the linesman, who detected a millimeter offside of Erick Pulgar.
