Manchester United left-Left-back Luke Shaw made a bad tackle against Hungary tonight, Gareth Southgate's men drew the game against Hungary tonight. The referee who officiated the game, gave Hungary a penalty in the first half, but some of the fans were claiming that, it's a wrong decision. In this article, I will be showing you the 2 reasons why the referee shouldn't be blamed.

1. Luke Shaw Felt Reluctant When He Was In Possession Of The Ball

According to me who watched the match closely, Luke Shaw was in possession of the ball inside the box, he wanted to raise the ball a little bit, before making a clearance, but it was too late. I don't think that the referee made a mistake by giving Hungary a penalty, Manchester United Left-back Luke Shaw was shown a yellow card for the bad tackle.

2. Hungarian Midfielder Loic Nego Committed Luke Shaw

I think that Luke Shaw was committed by the Hungarian midfielder, when he saw Luke Shaw raising the ball, he decided to make a move and head the ball, so in the process of heading the ball, Luke Shaw is also trying to clear the ball. That's why the referee awarded the penalty, the English Left-back could have paused when he spotted Nego coming, it's clearly a bad leg and a penalty. I don't think that the referee should be blamed for his decision. Luke Shaw felt very bad after the incident, but the result is not that bad. The game ended in a 1-1 draw, as both sides failed to score in the second half of the game.
