Germany head coach, Martina Voss-Tecklenburg, has hit out at the referee following her side’s Women’s Euro 2022 final defeat to England on Sunday.
Voss-Tecklenburg watched as England won their first major trophy since 1966 after defeating Germany 2-1 at Wembley.
Two goals from Ella Toone and Chloe Kelly gave England the victory over Germany.
But Voss-Tecklenburg said that England committed a clear handball during the encounter, adding that the referee should have looked at it on the screen, adding that it hurt a little.
“I’m thinking about the situation at 0-0, there was a clear situation in the box which was a clear handball,” Voss-Tecklenburg said at her post-match press conference.
“VAR looked at it but didn’t give it. Why didn’t the referee look at it? That hurt a little.
“We wanted to play courageously to get the first goal and play with a high press. When we actually had the ball more, we conceded the goal.
“In extra-time, the 2-1 was just a bit unlucky. Maybe the penalty should have decided it.”
