The former Liverpool and German defender Didi Hamann was on punditry duty for RTE on Wednesday night while watching Portugal vs Ireland at the Algarve. The 48 year old questions the performance from the man in the middle throughout the game of Portugal v Ireland in Group A of qualification for the World Cup in Qatar.
In 35 years playing or watching football I never had the feeling that something wasn’t right. Yesterday I did for the 1st time. Played 1 minute over added time in 1st half and for no reason well past in the 2nd which cost Ireland a point, on top of a dozen dubious calls https://t.co/kjUyHtIZmZ

It’s hard to disagree with the Champions League winner, something of the calls were shocking and some of the pictures like the one above you would question. He most defiantly a Ronaldo fan, aren’t we all though, but you have to put that aside when your the man in the middle.
