French media has claimed that there was a rule break before the ball went in that should have caused it to be chalked off.
According to French outlet L'Equipe, they think that two “emotional substitutes” ran onto the pitch before the ball crossed the line for Messi’s goal and therefore the referee should have disallowed it.
Marciniak, though, thinks the French were guilty of this as well.
“The French didn't mention this photo, where you can see how there are seven Frenchmen on the pitch when Mbappe scores a goal," he said.
"First of all, to penalise this situation it should affect the game. What was the impact of the boys who got up and jumped onto the field?”
