“I can’t say I have ever experienced such a decision. He made an immediate decision that it was a hand goal. He later admitted he was wrong. He is a young and good referee, I accepted his apology. Though, I didn’t need it,” head coach of the Azerbaijan national team Nikola Jurčević said.
Report informs that he spoke to Sportske novosti commenting on Euro-2020 qualifier in Hungary. He said that if Dutch referee Dennis Higler has allowed Bahlul Mustafazade’s goal in extra time, then it would have helped Croatia to qualify for the final: “Everything is getting complicated now. But I’m sure that Croatia will overcome Slovakia in the next round and get to the next stage. At present, they are the leaders of the group. “
He also spoke about his expectations from the remaining two matches: “Although all of our rivals scored in the matches against our national team, we will do our best. We got points from Croatia and we had to do the same in Hungary. Every game is a new motivation for us. We’ll try to surprise Wales and Slovakia in the last 180 minutes.”
