Mbappe was offside – Sergio Busquets says after Spain’s defeat to France

Spain midfielder, Sergio Busquets, has criticised referee Anthony Taylor after their 2-1 loss in the UEFA Nations League final to France on Sunday.

Busquets slammed Taylor’s decision to allow Kylian Mbappe’s late winner in France’s 2-1 win against Spain.

France defeated Spain following goals from Karim Benzema and Mbappe after Mikel Oyarzabal scored the opener for Sapin at San Siro.

Reacting, Busquets told Spanish television after the game, “The referee told us that Eric Garcia wanted to play the ball and that kills the offside.

 

“But he wanted to play the ball because the ball would have reached Mbappe who was offside! It does not make sense!”

He added: “The second goal seemed offside to me. We pulled up the defensive line really well. I think Mbappe was offside.”
