Tunisia earned a hard-fought point against a very strong Denmark side in today’s second World Cup match.
The first game of the day saw Saudi Arabia SHOCK Argentina by beating them 2-1 after going 0-1 down to a Lionel Messi penalty.
But the main controversy came in the Denmark v Tunisia game as Denmark were ‘ROBBED’ of a last-minute penalty after the ball hit the Tunisia players’ arm.
In defence of Tunisia, they were also denied a penalty earlier on in the game.
Twitter has gone into meltdown over the referees decisions on both penalty calls.
This should have been penalty. I don't understand what is the point from VAR anymore pic.twitter.com/05Uzjv3weA— ahmed yahyaoui (@AZ_cyberUnited) November 22, 2022

The referee ran over to the monitor to give Tunisia a free kick instead of awarding Denmark a penalty.
