Controversial Ruling Addressed: Egypt’s VAR Raises Eyebrows as He didn’t see anything

    The match between Port Said-based Al Masry and visiting Farco (1-0) on Thursday in the second round of the Egyptian Premier League witnessed widespread controversy due to a controversial arbitration case.

    Farco’s players claimed a penalty in the 75th minute after their Sudanese counterpart Saif El-Din Malik Bakhit fell in the penalty area after being pushed by Hussein El-Sayed, Al Masry’s left-back.

    The VAR room called in arena referee Hamada Al-Kalawi to look into the questionable replay situation, but despite this, he decided not to award a penalty.

    Pharco Club commented on this frame on its official social media accounts with the words: “Have the rules of the game changed with the start of the new season?!”

    Port Said-based Al Masry Club achieved their first win since losing in the first round of the new league season to defending champions Al Ahly with four unanswered goals, moving up to eleventh place in the league standings.

    At the same time, Pharco Club suffered a second defeat in a row and dropped to the last eighteenth place on the rating ladder.
