The seleccionador of Croatia, Nico Kovac, finished very angered with the performance of the Japanese referee Yuichi Nishimura and left to glimpse that the World-wide of Brazil 2014 could be altered with helps for the "canarinha". "All the world saw that it was not penalti"

The trainer of Croatia, Nico Kovac, rushed forward duramente in press conference against the referee Yuichi Nishimura after the Japanese shattered a very equalised party signalling a penalti non-existent committed by Leave Lovren on Fred. "It was a circus. We play to the football and the rules are equal for the two teams. The logo of the FIFA says respect. Respect for both teams. It was odd the of today. If this is a penalti, leave the football and devote us to the basketball. If we follow like this, will have a circus", criticised the seleccionador Croatian without biting the tongue.

Brazil and Croatia empataban to one in the electronic when Nishimura invented a penalti very doubtful of Lovren, that remained surprised by the pitido of the referee and attended beside the rest of his mates to increparle on the lawn. "If somebody in the stadium saw that this was penal, that raise the hand. All the world in the stadium and 2.500 millions by television saw that it was not penal", added Kovac, that little by little was heating his speech. "It does not have at all that see with the referee. It has to see with that play in Brazil, in front of the favourite".

Luiz Felipe Scolari, feeling dizzy the partridge

Asked in press conference by the same action, the seleccionador of Brazil, Luiz Felipe Scolari, did not hide to the hour to keep that for him "was penalti". "I saw it ten times already in the television and for me was penalti. It is a question of interpretation and the referee interpreted it like this. Also there was lacking that I think that they were and did not signal them because he interpreted it like this". Scolari, besides, answered to the previous statements of Nico Kovac.

"I what say is that Brazil was five times champion of the world. Then, we organise five world-wide circuses? We did not have to I Peeled, to Garrincha, to Romario, to Ronaldo, to Ronaldinho, to Neymar...? I understand the demonstration of my colleague, is comprehensible and respect his opinion, but do not see that it have favoured us in the last five world-wide titles".
