referee team did not give a penalty

in the 26th minute of the European Championship final in the London Wembley Stadium, the ball of the English captain Leah Williamson jumped to the hand, which was clearly over shoulder height. Otherwise, the play equipment might even have ended up in the goal. The impartial Kateryna Monzul (Ukraine) did not punish the action, but the Var Paolo Valeri switched on to check the scene. But after a rather short check, the game continued without the penalty decision that was actually due or even possible red card for Williamson.

Voss-Tecklenburg clearly commented on the ARD. "This is a handball, you have to see that." Until after the game, the 54-year-old was not even aware that the situation had even been checked by the Var. "Then you don't understand it. Of course that's stupid, people have to worry who are responsible," she said.

The defeat itself wanted to "not fix a situation. It is of no use. England has earned the victory with a strong tournament. We can be proud of what we have achieved, even if it is not quite enough Has." However, a fader aftertaste remained.
