Jamie Carragher’s scathing criticism of England’s penalty award against the Netherlands has sparked a heated discussion among football fans.

The England striker was awarded a penalty in the 16th minute of their Euro 2024 semifinal against the Netherlands, and Harry Kane subsequently converted the spot-kick to level the scores at 1-1. However, former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes the referee got the decision wrong, claiming, "Never a penalty," accompanied by a laugh.

Carragher’s post received a mixed response, with fans of the England national team defending the call while others agreeing with his initial sentiment. "Studs up, pushed vertically towards Kane and the ball. Clear foul, clear penalty," said one fan. Meanwhile, another tweeted, "I don’t understand the fuss. I thought the foul on Kane was a clear penalty. Dumfries was nowhere near the ball."

The reaction comes as a significant talking point amidst the ongoing controversy surrounding VAR technology. With Lee Dixon describing the call as a "challenge" while former England international Alan Shearer opined that it would "settle" the Red Lion.
