One of the news of the fifth day of the 2026 World Cup Qualifiers, in addition to Colombia’s 2-1 victory against Brazil, was the fall of Argentina’s prized undefeated team at the hands of Uruguay, which beat it in La Bombonera by 0-0. 2.
Led by Matías Viña and Ronald Araújo, Marcelo Bielsa’s team struck a new blow, after beating Brazil 2-0.
However, the president of the Uruguayan Football Association, Ignacio Alonso, made his annoyance very clear about the refereeing of Wilmar Roldán.
It was a very intense match, with many disciplinary challenges that for the manager were not handled very well.
“Look how I have the knuckles to hit the wall, the anger that the interventions gave me. The unprecedented bias of a performance that on one side favored non-existent free throws, and on the other side cut off free throws that existed and didn’t give them,” Alonso said.
“I find it striking for a referee as important as Roldán, a performance as poor as today’s, and so biased,” concluded the leader, although he stopped short of announcing more formal protests.
