Brazil sues arbitration after losing to Morocco

It was a disappointing return for Brazil after the World Cup in Qatar.

In a friendly match on Saturday, the Seleçao lost 2-1 to Morocco at the Grand Stade de Tanger. However, the Brazilians blame this defeat on the “poor arbitration” of the Tunisian trio.

Brazil hoped to assert its supremacy over Morocco, which finished fourth at the last world championship in Qatar. But the Atlas Lions were not intimidated and showed that their course in Qatar was no accident. They scored two goals in the second half and held their own against Brazilian pressure.

The Brazilians were not pleased with the arbitration. Ramon Menezes, the interim coach, said at the press conference after the match that the referee made many mistakes that were against his team. He especially complained about a goal by Vinicius Jr. which was ruled out for offside in the first half.

Some players also expressed their dissatisfaction with the arbitration. Casemiro, who had a hard time going against Azzedine Ounahi, said the referee called too many fouls against Brazil. Rodrygo was also critical, but acknowledged that Morocco has a strong and big squad.

This game was a good test for both teams as they prepare for the next qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup. Morocco has strengthened its confidence, while Brazil still has a lot of work ahead of it.
