FIFA announced this Thursday (19) the referee list for the 2022 World Cup. Among the 36 referees, two are Brazilian. Raphael Claus and Wilton Pereira Sampaio will represent Brazil in Qatar.

However, many fans did not approve of the choices, especially that of Wilton, referee who has already been criticized by Argentine star Lionel Messi. The name of the professional started to appear among the most commented subjects of the networks.

Referee of the Goiás Football Federation, Wilton Pereira Sampaio has been part of the FIFA refereeing team since 2013. In 2021, during the qualifiers for the World Cup, the professional referee was harshly criticized by Messi after the duel between Argentina and Peru.

– Hard game, hard to play. Too much wind, they (Peru) all behind, leaving few spaces. The referee, whenever he directs our game, does the same, it seems he does it on purpose – declared Messi.

The case was remembered by some fans on social media, who did not approve of the choice of referee for the Qatar Cup.

In addition to Wilton Pereira and Raphael Claus, assistants Neuza Back, Bruno Boschilia, Rodrigo Figueiredo, Bruno Pires and Danilo Simon were also selected by FIFA to represent Brazil in the World Cup.

The World Cup in Qatar starts on the 21st of November. The groups are already defined and the Brazilian team will face in this first phase the teams of Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon.
