“In the 12th minute, we should have received a penalty and there was a moment when Yakob (Sayuri) pulled Persikabo’s shirt, a yellow card and the referee’s decision was correct. But before Kenzo (Nambu) was also withdrawn, I don’t know why the rules were different,” Bernardo said after match.

“In my opinion it’s a penalty and I’m also confused only in Indonesia maybe an incident like that isn’t a penalty, I said that many wrong decisions were made by the referee, at the start of the match Kenzo was withdrawn and if this was done by the opposing players it was as if nothing had happened , but when PSM did it, we got a card,” he said.
Aidil Sharin complained about the same thing. The formation manager from Singapore said that his team should have been awarded a penalty in the first half, but referee Sance had a different decision.
“We have tried, but yes, football is a matter of the referee, I saw in the video, in the first half, we should have received a penalty,” explained the Singaporean coach.
“In the second half, again I saw in the video (match), there was no touch of the ball against the hands, I don’t know why my players were penalized,” he concluded.
