@RealTimVine said: “That’s NEVER a penalty. Absolute shocker. The ref has been intimidated by the players and the gang. Oooh…he missed. Justice.”
The sensation was mutual within the BBC studio with Gary Lineker, Rio Ferdinand and Alan Shearer furious at the choice. “It is a disgraceful decision,” Ferdinand said.
“This is not what VAR has been brought in for. He’s flicked his eyelash for starters and the actual fact he’s gone over to take a look at it I believe is an outrageous decision.
“It’s never, ever a penalty,” Shearer added. “Are you able to remember when VAR was brought in and so they said it’s just clear up the clear and obvious and they are not going to re-referee the games.
“We keep saying that but that is never a pen.”
