The deliberate stamping on Michelle Alozie of the Super Falcon by England women’s national team player Lauren James has ignited an uproar on social media as Ghanaian and Nigerian netizens unite to lambast the latter.
Lauren, the forward for the national team, pushed Michelle Alozie and deliberately stamped on her in the 87th minute.
She was sent off for recklessly stamping on Michelle Alozie of Nigeria. James was first given a yellow card for a hard challenge, but the referee changed his mind and sent her out after a VAR review.
Many football fans, particularly Lauren’s supporters, are upset over her stunt since they didn’t anticipate her reacting in this way to Michelle’s tackle.
