World Cup 2018: Nigeria's Mikel Obi Reveals What Referee Cakir Said About Penalty Against Argentina

Nigeria Captain, John Mikel Obi has revealed what Turkish Referee, Cuneyt Cakir told him and teammates when they demanded for a penalty in the 2nd half.


With the match 1-1, Nigerian players surrounded the Referee when it appeared Marcus Rojo handled the ball in his own penalty area.


Referee Cakir consulted the VAR but decided against awarding a penalty which frustrated nigerians.


Nigeria eventually lost the match 2-1 and Argentina secured a place in the round of 16.


“I don’t understand how thatwasn’t a penalty, for me it was a clear handball,” he said, according to FourFourTwo.


“It was a clear penalty. Maybe the referee has given the first penalty and doesn’t want to give a second one.


“But a penalty is a penalty. He (the referee) looked at the VAR, (we asked him) did the ball hit the hand? He said ‘yes’, but why it’s not a penalty? I don’t understand.”
