NEARLY 200,000 people have now signed a petition to get the World Cup Final REPLAYED.
Argentina defeated France 4-2 on penalties after a thrilling 3-3 draw last Sunday to become world champions.
Lionel Messi and his teammates have since been celebrating in South America while showing off the trophy.
Shoot-out goalkeeper Emi Martinez continues to troll Kylian Mbappe, who made history with an incredible hat-trick but still ended up on the losing side.
However, a huge petition wants the whole showpiece to be rebooted from the ground up.
French website MesOpinions created the petition and it has now been signed by nearly 200,000 fans, all of whom claim Argentina’s first two goals shouldn’t have been scored.
They initially believe referee Szymon Marciniak was wrong when Ousmane Dembele was ruled to have fouled Angel Di Maria for the first penalty converted by Messi.
The contact appeared minor but proved enough to plunge the ex-Manchester United winger into the area.
They then argue that Di Maria’s second goal should have been ruled out as well.
Argentina used the counterattack to double their lead but French fans argue that Mbappe was fouled by Cristian Romero earlier.
HOW TO GET FREE BETS ON SOCCER
It’s not the first time football fans have started petitions.
One was set up when France was kicked out of the Euros by Switzerland over penalties last summer.
The argument then was that Swiss goalie Yann Sommer was off his line when he parried Mbappe’s kick.
But they have also found their way to these shores.
In August, a petition was launched on change.org to try to have referee Anthony Taylor banned from refereeing Chelsea games following the lively clash with Tottenham.
