A free kick was taken by Argentina while Scotland were making a substitution towards the end of a thrilling group stage clash at the Women’s World Cup.

The Argentinians came back from three goals down to draw the match 3-3 at Parc des Princes on Wednesday night.


A controversially retaken penalty winner in the fourth minute of added time sent their opponents out of the tournament.

But there were a series of other strange decisions from the officials during the game.

3 minutes it took the referee/var to award the penalty against Scotland there. Not added on. AND the referee blew the whistle for the free kick that led to the penalty whilst Scotland were making a sub, and thus had 12 players on the pitch. Where’s your VAR for that? @FIFAWWC pic.twitter.com/XtgEudrXya

As well as seemingly cutting the match short, Argentina were allowed to take a free kick while Scotland were still in the process of bringing a sub on.

Fiona Brown, replacing Lisa Evans, looked bemused as the play continued before she was able to get onto the pitch.
