The Tottenham player says, “It was a foul,” and the goal should not have stood.
The goal by Manchester City, according to Tottenham defender Destiny Udogie, should not have stood.
Nathan Ake’s close-range goal earlier tonight eliminated Spurs from the FA Cup. Following a corner kick by Kevin de Bruyne that ended directly in front of the goalkeeper, the goal was scored.
Before Ake scored, Vicario attempted to punch it, but Ruben Dias got in the way, only allowing him to punch it on Micky van de Ven’s back.
The goal was eventually awarded after a VAR review to determine whether Dias had fouled the Tottenham goalie.
The goal, though, continues to be a topic of discussion because many people believe it should not have stood.
Left-back Destiny Udogie of Spurs has also stated that he thinks Vicario was fouled.
Following the match, he stated:
“I will watch it again, but I think it was a foul, but from the pitch, I saw it was a block on the keeper.”
Disagreement away from that objective. Tottenham was a very underprivileged team. They were really wasteful with the ball and gave it away too easily.
It turned out to be extremely noticeable when players like Heung-min Son, Pape Matar Sarr, and Yves Bissouma were absent.
