Ronaldo Is A Total Genius For Winning A Penalty Against Ghana - FIFA Official, Oliseh, Opines

FIFA technical study group member, Sunday Oliseh, has labeled Cristiano Ronaldo as a genius for initiating contact and winning a controversial penalty in Portugal’s win over Ghana on Thursday, November 25, 2022.

According to former Nigeria player Sunday Oliseh, Ronaldo was smart in the situation to win the penalty.

“The Ronaldo penalty, people can say what they want about him, but the smartness to wait for that second, to touch the ball, continue his leg and then get the contact. 

That is a total genius,” Sunday Oliseh (member of FIFA technical study Group)

The referee refused to consult VAR for a second look at the incident, and Ronaldo converted the penalty kick to give Portugal a 3-2 win over Ghana at Stadium 974.

Meanwhile, legendary Premier League referee Mike Dean, reacting to the penalty had an opposing view to that of Oliseh.

Mike Dean will not blame the on-pitch referee as he believes the referees in the VAR room should have ordered a review of the incident.

“That looked like a penalty from the referee’s angle and I can understand why he took it. The issue is the new thing now which is VAR which you think to get the referee out of trouble.
