Antoine Griezmann has been criticized by fans for holding a "disrespectful" goal after scoring a controversial penalty against Croatia.
The Frenchman was accused of making fun of Croatia after celebrating his goal with a dance & # 39; Take the L & # 39; of the popular videogame Fortnite.
Despite having been named man of the match in France's 4-2 victory, the heroic acts of the 27-year-old were fouled by the celebration that did not fit well with some fans.

Griezmann, who has been celebrating goals with the videogame dance since May, gave the celebration an air on the biggest stage of Final of the World Cup of France against Croatia.
France conceded a penalty after VAR asked referee Nestor Pitana to review his decision not to award a point after Griezmann's corner hit Ivan Perisic on the arm in the area.
After sending Croatian goalkeeper Danijel Subašić the wrong way, the French striker left with an "L" for the loser with his hand.
Unfortunately for Griezmann, the post-goal celebration was not the only incident that struck a chord.
The French striker attended the opening goal of the final, but the action he took to receive the free-kick caused some fans to pull Griezmann for diving.
We only saw the highlights of # WorldCupfinal and saw the embarrassing plunge of Griezmann that led to the opener #FRA . It is a pity that a cracker of a game, and the ticker shown by #CRO will unfortunately resonate with the French game of chance and an incorrect penalty.

@ESPNFC Why the VAR is not used for immersions worthy of the card, such as Griezmann's immersion, which lead to the first objective? If you are going to grant PKs by involuntary hand balls, a ref fails through VAR, it should also be used against dives, since dives are one of the worst things in football.

@ FIFAWorldCup What a disgrace. Griezmann should get a lifelong ban so that his pitch is not awarded to the man in the game for cheating to get a free kick and then score a penalty that should never have been awarded. You will never sacrifice diving if you reward players for doing it.

Griezmann collapsed when the Croatian Marcelo Brozovic seemed to step on his heels at the beginning of the game. first time, and the free kick he received resulted in a devastating own goal for Croatia.
