The Uruguayan players expressed their outrage with the German college’s and the VAR’s actions in a very forceful manner. Giménez even got close enough to shoot a FIFA official, and Cavani threw the VAR monitor on the ground as he left the field.
The FIFA also opened proceedings against Serbia in connection with “incidences” during their 3-2 loss to Switzerland in their last Group G match.
The FIFA executive committee has not identified the incidents, although it was requested of the fervent Serbian supporters throughout the game that they “detain all canticles and discriminatory gestures.”
The FIFA had already opened an investigation into Serbia after the team had worn a controversial bandana representing Kosovo in its uniform prior to losing to Brazil at the start of the tournament.
