Karapetyan: Bonucci is shameful!

Armenia striker Aleksandre Karapetyan has branded Leonardo Bonucci ‘shameful’ after accusing the Italy defender of getting him sent off.

Karapetyan opened the scoring for Armenia but saw red in first-half stoppages, having picked up a second booking for a perceived elbow on Bonucci.

The 31-year-old responded on his Instagram Story: “I have big respect for what you have achieved in your football life, but that was shameful.”

The Azzurri went on to win 3-1 thanks to goals from Andrea Belotti (x2) and Lorenzo Pellegrini.

La Nazionale are now top of Group J in Euro 2020 qualifying at the midway point, with maximum points from their five games.
