UNFAIR: Engliand referee makes fans get angry with Xavi Simons’ ruled out goal against France

The lengthy VAR assessment that determined Denzel Dumfries to be offside during the Group D match between France and the Netherlands has become a significant topic of discussion.

In the 68th minute of Friday’s match in Leipzig, Xavi Simons appeared to have given his nation the lead when his first-time effort beat France custodian Mike Maignan.


Anya Taylor-Joy appeared to be more in love with her husband, Malcolm McRae, as they exchanged kisses while watching the Formula One Monaco Grand Prix in Monte Carlo on Sunday. 

As the pair observed the thrilling race, the 28-year-old actress appeared more joyful than ever, as Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc emerged victorious in front of a jubilant home crowd.

As they observed the race from the Mercedes VIP suite in the paddock, Anya and Malcolm were observed piling on the PDA. 

In a black figure-hugging playsuit, the Golden Globe winner exuded a cool demeanour. She complemented her ensemble with a daring brown and red motorcycle jacket. 

She maintained her comfort by wearing black slip-on shoes and protecting her eyes from the sun with a pair of stylish eyeglasses. 

Anya was beaming as she conversed with Malcolm, who wore an oversized navy shirt, while she neatly arranged her long platinum blonde hair in a low bun. 

During the day, Anya was observed conversing with former world champion Lewis Hamilton as she posed in front of his Mercedes car outside the garages. 

Since they began dating in early 2021, Anya has seldom discussed her relationship with Malcolm. They were initially observed together in New York.

They have been able to sustain a positive relationship despite the fact that they reside on opposite sides of the Atlantic. Anya is primarily based in London, while Malcolm, who is also an actor and a member of a band, resides in the United States.

Anya stated in March 2022 that she had recently informed her companion that he was her hobby when discussing their relationship with British Vogue. I regard reading as an obligation. He delighted in it due to his similarity.

‘I have at last discovered an individual who will gladly engage in silent reading with me. Essentially, we are seven years old and 80 years old simultaneously, and it functions well.

She also mentioned that the distance is difficult, but it is also an advantage because it forces you to appreciate the time you have together.

The mundane activities of everyday life are brimming with pleasure. I enjoy accompanying him to the petrol station to top up.

Anya was born in Miami, Florida, and transferred to Buenos Aires as a toddler. She and her parents, Dennis, a banker born in South America and Spanish-English mother Jennifer, relocated to London at the age of six for “political reasons.” Dennis is a Scot. Jennifer is from Zambia.

She became one of the most sought-after actresses in Hollywood as a result of her portrayal of orphaned chess prodigy Beth Harmon in the Netflix series The Queen’s Gambit. She was awarded the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie and the Golden Globe for Best Actress.

She was nominated for another Golden Globe for her performance in the black comedy film The Menu, in which she starred alongside Nicholas Hoult and Ralph Fiennes. Additionally, she is currently in the main role of the blockbuster action film Furiosa, which serves as a prequel to the 2015 film Mad Max: Fury Road.

Furiosa has just barely edged out The Garfield Movie to win the coveted Memorial Day weekend, according to early box office figures. However, the two films may exchange positions when the four-day numbers are disclosed on Monday.

According to Deadline, Furiosa was the highest-grossing film at the box office, with an estimated $25.5 million. The Garfield Movie followed closely behind, with $24.8 million.

It is anticipated that the Memorial Day weekend will be the lowest in the box office in 29 years, since Casper topped the box office in late May 1995 with $22 million. This excludes the 2020 box office, which was closed due to the COVID-19 blackout.

Fans are making the same point after Xavi Simons' goal against France is controversially ruled out

After the goal was disallowed, numerous fans immediately began to criticise Taylor and Attwell.

A spectator stated, “VAR has been functioning satisfactorily this summer, as it was during Euro 2020.” Up until Stuart Attwell and Anthony Taylor became involved. Twice.

A second individual wrote, “It is evident that the English officials are the ones who are taking the longest and causing the most trouble with VAR.” Certainly. No other official has taken this long.

The first controversial VAR decision involving an English referee, according to a third commentator. I am taken aback.

A fourth individual stated, “It is not uncommon for English officials to spend an inordinate amount of time discussing a VAR call and appear to reach an incorrect conclusion.” The goal was established by the unmistakable context provided by the replay from behind the goal.

A fifth participant stated, “VAR has been so efficient and flawless that it has not impeded any game this tournament…”right up until the one where Anthony Taylor, Stuart Atwell, and the rest of the gang officiated.”

Dale Johnson, ESPN’s VAR authority, also expressed his opinion on the incident.

“I believed that would be prohibited immediately after the goal was scored,” he stated on X, which was previously known as Twitter. “The keeper’s behaviour could be influenced by the proximity of Dumfries to Maignan.”

“Ecuador had a goal disallowed against the Netherlands during the World Cup in circumstances that were strikingly similar.”

The tournament in Germany this summer will be officiated by Premier League referees Michael Oliver and Anthony Taylor, with Stuart Attwell and David Coote serving as video assistant referees.
