Fort Lauderdale, Florida — Phil Neville, head coach of Inter Miami, served on the board a week ago on a controversial phone call that didn’t benefit the team.
He was far from agreeing with the referee for the match on Sunday.
Inter Miami drew Atlanta United 1-1 on Sunday afternoon, but one of the biggest issues after Mother’s Day Matinee was whether Neville’s team should have delayed their chances of winning it. It was.
Atlanta United goalkeeper Brad Guzan and Inter Miami midfielder Victor Ulloa clash to scramble for the ball in an 18-yard box, penalizing Heron and no call from referee Joseph Dickerson It led to a firm protest against. Neville categorically opposed the decision.
“100 percent penalty. After the stalemate, excited Neville said.” I think there should have been two. The referee is bad. I think it’s fair. I praised the referee last week, but it’s It’s a 100 percent penalty. I’ve seen it four times. Anyone who has been judged has disappointed the referee, but I’ll put it in the report. “

Inter Miami managers who agreed to a formal decision not to leave Nashville SC players last week also discussed his team’s performance. Neville said he thought Atlanta United was a better team in the first half, especially as Heron struggled to meet the match at the opening stanza.
“I thought we were a little too emotional because we knew that their system and one-on-one markings would make the game chaotic,” Neville said. “What we said in half-time is to calm down and play the game and stick to our plans, not their plans.
“Their plan was to confuse us, confuse our rhythm, and I thought they did it.”
Neville said he thought the game had changed better after the break, citing the commitments and aspirations his side had made when trying to return to the match. With the advent of Argentine playmaker Federico Higuain, play was improved and finally a 77-minute equalizer was born.
Lewis Morgan dribbled through two Atlanta United players, then shot a low hard shot at a nearby post past Guzan and made individual efforts to rescue Inter Miami.
“In the game, I tried to make things happen and it didn’t work. It’s hard to believe that chances will fall for you,” said Morgan, who opened a season account with it. Told. attack. “Fortunately, I was able to make it myself and take it. From there I thought there was only one winner, but unfortunately I couldn’t reach my second goal. “
Inter Miami could have had a chance to score a second goal if the late call favored the team. However, it did not result in Neville expressing his serious disappointment after a fierce discussion with Dickerson after the final whistle.
“I’m happy with the end of the game,” Neville said. “But I’m not happy with what I thought we should be penalized — I’m angry.”
