'Video Assisted Rubbish!' - Football world divided over VAR storm

Opinion was divided as fans on social media had their say on the VAR decisions during Cameroon v Chile encounter at Otkrytie Arena on Sunday evening

Chile’s Eduardo Vargas was certainly in disbelief that his first half effort was cancelled, when he fired past Fabrice Ondoa after receiving a pass from Arturo Vidal - but the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) felt otherwise.

It was the big talking point of the first half as Chile were denied the chance of taking the lead against Cameroon in the Confederations Cup tie. Referee Damir Skomina ruled the South American’s goal for an offside after VAR referral.

And there was still more drama from VAR in the dying seconds of the game, as Vargas made it two after firing home the rebound after Alexis Sanchez had his attempt blocked. Many felt the goal should not have stood.

As usual, fans took to Twitter to express their thoughts on the effectiveness of the Video Assistant Referee.
