Alfredo Morelos’ Agent Hammers Bobby Madden Over Controversial Penalty Award

Jonne Lindblom didn’t miss Bobby Madden after the Scottish referee had a significant impact on Finland‘s defeat to Italy yesterday.

The Finnish agent – who represents Rangers striker Alfredo Morelos – watched on as his country lost 2-1 to the Italians in Tampere.

Finland went into the game in confident mood, having won four of their opening five Euro 2020 qualification games.
