In this Mitsubishi Cup semi-final, the controversy over the referee’s decision continues.

In the first leg of the semi-final between Malaysia and Thailand, there was a misjudgment regarding Malaysia’s goal.

During the first match between Malaysia and Thailand, Thailand’s goalkeeper Kitipong Putauchuek failed to handle the ball properly in the 10th minute free kick situation in the second half when Malaysia led 1-0 with Faisal Halim’s opening goal. The ball hit the Malaysian player’s head and crossed the goal line as it was, and seemed to be recognized as a goal. 

However, the goal was disallowed.

The referee did not declare a goal, ruling that the Malaysian player used an elbow on a Thai defender before the ball crossed the goal line. As a result of looking at the slow screen, it was Kitipong, the Thai goalkeeper, not the Malaysian player, who struck the head of the Thai defender. 

Coach Kim Pan-gon protested harshly, but the referee’s decision, which was a mistake, was upheld in this tournament without video review (VAR).

After the match, the Malaysian media heavily criticized the referee’s misjudgement.

When this story came out at a press conference the day before the second game, coach Shin and coach Park strongly criticized each other.
