Not the first time that the referee, Mohamed, insisted. Al-Hanafi not counting a correct penalty kick for Smouha Club despite the (mouse) warning to him. "
The Smouha player had been handicapped inside the Zamalek penalty area from the player Tariq Hamed, but the Hanafi referee did not count it despite the fact that he returned to the situation via video technology, which angered the players and members of Smouha Club management, who believe that they have been subjected to an injustice that must repeat the match and punish the referee.
