    No, but 95% of VAR decisions have been spot on throughout the tournament.

    That’s the first wrong decision they’ve made tonight IMO.

    Everything else has either been as clear as day or is a matter of opinion and the latter you will never please everyone with.

    What’s the script with the added time?

    Is this to do with actually implementing the subs 30 seconds or is there more to it? Hasn’t always been VAR hold ups :39:

    If they're so obsessed about getting decisions right they should also bring in a rule for retrospective decision changes. Such as that penalty tonight which was blatantly wrong, just review it after the game then rescind the penalty and amend the scoreline accordingly.

    It's all about getting the what the right scoreline should have been after all.

    I am being flippant of course. I am fairly enjoying this new era of farcical football where people try to control * to reach a desired outcome.

    Was thinking exactly the same mate. Or if it was a VAR decision that finally got that trolling brit * banned off this site. I'd take that.

    Bit of a weird one last night with Iran. In one way they were lucky(got a penalty which wasn't really a penalty IMO) and they were unlucky in the fact that Ronaldo could of got sent off and that chance at the end. Good effort.

    Perish the thought!

    To make a slight on such a dignified and honest organization who only has it's best interests in a level playing field.

    I hereby retract my previous statement, and leave the announcements to our friendly new neighbors across the City who hold us in the highest regard, whilst wishing nothing but good for our club and the history of our origin.

    Iran World Cup striker Sardar Azmoun has retired from international football at the age of 23, claiming his mother has become seriously ill because of the insults he has received.

    Azmoun - nicknamed the 'Iranian Messi' - had scored 23 goals in 33 games for his country before the tournament.

    He did not find the net in Russia as Carlos Queiroz's side finished third in Group B behind Spain and Portugal.

    Azmoun described his decision to stop playing for Iran as "painful".

    He scored 11 goals in 14 games in qualifying and played the full 90 minutes in all three group games in Russia as Iran beat Morocco, lost to Spain and drew with Portugal.

    However, Azmoun said the criticism he had received had made his mother ill.

    "My mother had overcome a serious illness and I was happy," said Azmoun, who plays his club football in Russia for Rubin Kazan.

    "Unfortunately because of the unkindness of some people, and the insults that me and my team-mates in no way deserved, her illness has become severe.

    "This has put me in a difficult position where I must pick one or the other - and as a result I pick my mother."

    Azmoun made his debut for Iran at the age of 19.

    He is fifth on his country's list of all-time top scorers and was compared to national hero Ali Daei, the record international goalscorer of all-time with 109 goals in 149 appearances.
