Falcao told reporters after the match “he always made calls to favour England.”

Colombia were whistled for 23 of the game’s 36 fouls and received six of the eight yellow cards in a feisty game at the Spartak Stadium in Moscow.

Geiger also awarded a penalty against Carlos Sanchez, which led to England’s only goal during open play.

“I found it peculiar that they put an American referee in this instance.

“To tell you the truth, the process leaves a lot of doubts. He only spoke English, some bias was certain. Through small calls he was pushing us [toward] our goal, that was clear for me.

“The referee disturbed us a lot, in the 50-50 plays, he always made the calls in favour of England.

“This situation was undermining us. He didn’t act with the same criteria for both teams.

“When in doubt, he always went to the England side. It’s shameful that this happens in the round of 16 of a World Cup.”
