FIFA issued a statement that “strongly rebukes” Diego ’s criticism of Mark Geiger following England’s World Cup penalty shoot-out win over Colombia on Tuesday.

The Argentina icon – who has rarely been out of the headlines during Russia 2018 – believes Colombia were victims of a “monumental theft” and laid into the performance of the officials.

FIFA responded and described the 57-year-old’s comments as “entirely inappropriate and completely unfounded”.

“Furthermore, it also considers the additional comments and insinuations made as being entirely inappropriate and completely unfounded.”
