More than 300,000 people call for a replay of Germany’s quarter-finals

Following the controversy surrounding Marc Cucurella’s handball during Spain’s Euro 2024 quarter-final match
against Germany, a fan initiated a petition demanding a replay of the match and for UEFA to sanction referee
Anthony Taylor. The match, which ended in a victory for Spain, has sparked significant outrage among German
fans who believe Taylor failed to appropriately officiate a match of such importance.

The incident in question occurred during extra time when a potential handball by Cucurella was not penalized. Referee Taylor did not award a penalty to Germany due to a preceding handball by Fullkrug. This decision has led to widespread dissatisfaction among German supporters.

In response, thousands of German fans have taken to the platform ‘Change.org’ to promote a petition calling for a replay of the quarter-final. The petition has gained substantial traction, with more than 300,000 signatories as reported by ‘AS’. The fans are not only demanding a replay but also an investigation into Anthony Taylor’s impartiality and appropriate disciplinary action from UEFA.

This incident highlights the intense scrutiny and pressure on referees in major international tournaments, as well as the passionate responses from fans when contentious decisions occur.
