I made mistake in World Cup final – Referee Marciniak admits



The referee who officiated the 2022 World Cup final, Szymon Marciniak, has admitted he made a wrong call during the game between Argentina and France.
Marciniak became the first official from Poland to take charge of the biggest game in world football last Sunday.

He has been widely praised by pundits and fans for his performance.

Among Marciniak’s highlight were three rightfully awarded penalties and booking French striker Marcus Thuram for diving without consulting VAR.
