Very Idiotic—Michael Owen On Ousmane Dembele



Very Idiotic—Michael Owen On Ousmane Dembele

Ousmane Dembele in the world cup final against Argentina made quite a silly mistake within the first half of the game to gift the Argentine team an advantage after making a poor tackle in the penalty box on Angel Di Maria, a decision former Premier League and England star, Michael Owen cannot understand.

The ‘idiotic’ challenge by France forward Ousmane Dembele that resulted in Argentina’s first penalty during both nations’ 2022 FIFA World Cup final on Sunday has been criticized by former Manchester United striker Michael Owen.

The Former England international Owen revealed this in a tweet posted on his Twitter account.

In the World Cup final, France got off to a slow start against Argentina, with Lionel Messi setting the pace and Julian Alvarez pressing fiercely from the front.

In the 23rd minute of the game, Di Maria quickly outwitted Dembele and made his way into the penalty area.

Ousmane Dembele became agitated, and while making just slight contact with Di Maria, that contact was sufficient to knock the Juventus star to the ground and prompt referee Szymon Marciniak to gesture to the spot.

Argentina ultimately prevailed in the World Cup championship match when Messi successfully converted the penalty shot.

After 120 minutes, it concluded in a 3-3 tie that was won 4-2 on penalties.

Michael Owen on Twitter, tweeted:

“Putting aside his idiotic challenge for the penalty, Dembele has given it away virtually every time he’s touched it. Argentina playing very well here.”

According to stats gathered on Ousmane Dembele’s game time in the game, the Barcelona player had a poor game to remember.
