Argentina has opened up the scoring against Uruguay in their Copa América fixture to take a 1-0 lead.

However, there’s some controversy already 30 minutes into the match as Manchester United forward Edinson Cavani was dribbling inside the box. As the 34-year-old observed what to do next, Real Betis midfielder Guido Rodríguez who was dragging his foot, clipped Cavani, who would fall.

Despite the Cavani following, the referee didn’t award a penalty kick and allowed the play to continue. A decision that didn’t sit well with the Uruguayan side.
