It was argued that enough extra time should be given even in a game where the gap was quite wide.
Britain’s ‘Sky Sports’ said on the 10th (hereinafter Korean time), “FIFA referee chairman Pierluigi Collina added to matches with one-sided scores, such as Liverpool’s 7-0 win over Manchester United last weekend. Time wants to be applied properly.”
On the 6th, the 26th round of the English Premier League (EPL) between Liverpool and Manchester United was held at Anfield, the home of Liverpool. It was a fierce rivalry match called the ‘Northwest Derby’, and the match was played in a situation where Manchester United were riding a better flow than Liverpool in the recent atmosphere. That’s why Liverpool’s overwhelming victory was difficult to predict easily.
Cody Gakpo’s opening goal gave Liverpool a 1-0 lead at the end of the first half, giving both teams a chance of winning. However, Liverpool continued to score goals in the second half. Gakpo, Mohamed Salah, and Darwin Nunez each scored multiple goals, and substitute Roberto Firmino scored a key goal in the 43rd minute of the second half.
In the second half of the match, Liverpool scored six goals, and both teams made five substitutions. Compared to the time required for goal celebrations and substitutions, the extra time in the second half was set at 3 minutes. In the last 2022 Qatar World Cup, sufficient extra time was given considering all the time the game was stopped. 윈 토토
Regarding this, referee chairman Collina told the UK’s ‘The Times’, “Out of 10 EPL matches last weekend, 4 games were given more than 10 minutes of extra time. However, 2 games had to be given more extra time, but 7-0 (Liverpool- Manchester United), 4-0 (Brighton-West Ham United), so the game ended earlier.”
Collina continued, “Liverpool scored six goals in the second half alone. Generally, when the score is 7-0, you can think that there is no need to give a lot of extra time. The difference is related to the final standings, and it can make a difference (even if you lose) depending on whether you score one goal or not.”
