“I’ve given up”: commentator Jonathan Pearce responds to “nonsense” at the end of the Netherlands vs Argentina

Even BBC commentator Jonathan Pearce was tired of the referee at the end of the 2022 World Cup quarter-final between the Netherlands and Argentina.

Referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz handed out more than a dozen bookings – much to the anger of former Argentina player Sergio Agüero who was watching – and the Spaniard couldn’t even keep his cards in his pocket during the penalty shootout.

“I’ve given up,” Pearce sighed, annoyed as Mateu Lahoz waved his last few cards, not even knowing who had dealt them. The Robot Wars legend even commented that he didn’t think the official would be asked back for the rest of the tournament, so erratic and happy with bookings. Many on social media described the performance as poor, with some calling it “bullshit”.
