Manzano did not award a penalty after Mudryk's fall

Ukraine's national football team faced a terrible mistake by referee Jesus Gil Manzano, who did not award a penalty kick to Italy in stoppage time of the decisive Euro 2024 qualifying match. The Spaniard ignored a clear foul by defender Bryan Cristante against Mykhailo Mudryk, allowing the Azzurri to advance to the continental championship from second place in Group C.

This was reported by journalists of the Russian portal Sport24 in their article entitled "Ukraine was scandalously fooled, but it can still reach the Euro: all the scenarios". Representatives of the Russian media emphasized that Manzano did not even refer to video replay (VAR), although the moment required it.
