“At the Var there is Erdogan”. Italy claims a sunny penalty against Turkey for an evident handball by Celik at the end of the first half.

And among the trends, Erdogan appears ‘mysteriously’. The Turkish president, not present at the Olympic stadium in Rome, becomes the protagonist. “Strange rigor, Erdogan’s hand”, writes one user. However, there are many who bet on the same version: “Erdogan is at the var”, many write.
