      Not sure why it is a joke. Law 12 states a direct free kick is awarded if a player holds an opponent, looked to me that the Saudi was holding the Argie.

        Feels like the lack of consistency being the problem.

        If that's a penalty why wasn't there one yesterday for England?

          I think the England one wasn't given because Maguire had his arm round the defender's shoulders so it introduced an element of both being at fault. I'm willing to bet that's why VAR didn't overturn the ref's decision and award the penalty.

            Maybe. But, to me, tt still felt like more of a pen than what was awarded for Iran at the end.

            VAR was introduced to help with the 'clear and obvious' mistakes. Not to police the game to determine if you're offside by a gnat's bollock. Just seems mad where we are and how long it takes to decide things.

            I'm not anti videos being used to help the ref but not if it means the current setup.

            (This turned into more of a rant that I anticipated!)

              I haven't seen the incident for Iran's penalty so don't know but while Maguire was undoubtedly being fouled he probably wasn't entirely innocent.

              VAR was brought in to end controversial refereeing decisions. It hasn't, get rid . . . imho. It's dreadful.

              As for those offside decisions, absolutely farcical.

          And now a dodgy offside, VAR is awful, won't be watching much of this world cup at this rate.

            It's mentally drummed into them. They can't not do wrestling for free kicks and corners into the box.

            Ohherwise why England needed to do it in the last minute of stoppage time yesterday is beyond me.

              They probably thought that the ref was very lenient on this rule after Maguire was rugby tackled to the ground !!!

                Who had his arm wrapped round the player doing the same?

                Take your Union Jack knickers off and look again.
