    Yeah, it happened in the world cup.
    Ref's were summoned to pitchside, watched the replay, came back and said 'play on/drop ball'.

    Tuesday, June 26: Nigeria vs. Argentina

    "Marcos Rojo tried to head the ball, but only managed to nod it onto his own arm. Referee Cuneyt Cakir waved away the appeals of Nigeria striker Odion Ighalo, but the VAR decided that it needed a closer look from the match official. Cakir went over to his screen and quickly rejected the chance to change his mind.

    Deflections off the same defender should not lead to a penalty award for handball, so why VAR initiated a full review is perplexing. Nigeria captain John Obi Mikel, though. was left confused and frustrated.

    VAR RATING: 6/10 The referee was strong to correctly stick to his original decision, but there should never have been a review."

    Wednesday, June 27: Mexico v Sweden

    "Javier Hernandez's heart was in his mouth when he tried to chest the ball down inside the area. Several Sweden players appealed for handball immediately but referee Nestor Pitana waved away the claims. When the ball went out of play, the official held up the restart before VAR instructed him to take another look on his pitch-side monitor.

    Though there was certainly some evidence the ball may have hit Hernandez's arm, it wasn't certain whether it had hit the side of his chest first (and thus neutralising any handball appeal) or in fact if it had hit his arm at all. Perhaps the probability was that it did hit his arm, so Hernandez was a little lucky the referee stayed with his original decision.

    VAR RATING: 8/10 Pitana was within his rights to reject the review if he did not feel he had made a clear and obvious error. Other referees might have pointed to the spot."

    Overall, the rating for VAR in the world cup of 2018 was +76%.

    VAR would be fine if the people reviewing it were competent.

    Var kills the spontaneity of the game make no mistake about it. The best part about football is that 10-15 seconds of sheer mayhem when a goal goes in... Now when a goal goes in you're going to be subconsciously thinking about a potential VAR check and feeling stupid if you go mental, it reduces the excitement, its a shame really.
