The match which was played last Friday, saw the hosts lose 2-1 in extra time, with Mikel Merino heading in a 119th-minute winner.

 

A new revelation has forced tens of thousands of fans to sign a petition calling for a replay of the Euro 2024 quarter-final between Germany and Spain.

 

Recall that the match which was played last Friday, and saw the hosts lose 2-1 in extra time, with Mikel Merino heading in a 119th-minute winner.

 

Dani Olmo had opened the scoring in the second half, before Florian Wirtz volleyed in a dramatic 89th-minute equalizer for Germany.

 

The controversial moment came in the 23rd minute of extra time, when Spanish left back Marc Cucurella’s left hand blocked a shot from Jamal Musiala inside the penalty area.

 

Germany fans and players were adamant that this should have resulted in a penalty kick.

 

However, referee Anthony Taylor waved play on, with his VAR team also in agreement.

 

As at Monday morning, more than 30,000 have signed a petition via change.org asking for the game to be replayed.
