    The VAR HAS checked it but determined that it isn't a clear enough error to have the referee take a second look. Allowing teams request a review wouldn't achieve anything but waste time.

    Not red, was a definite attempt for the ball he just failed to get it. Tbh they share the blame. But you're right that he didn't "refuse" anything.
  6. Well then, lets see how this will go.

    Oh yes, just the "might well" that sounded a bit optimistic.

    Well that's just poor research tbh. If you had asked anyone that follows refereeing stuff (yea I know, not that many of us ) they could have told you long before the tournament started that there would be no more cards this time than there was in 2014 (i.e not a lot). Not sure what the over/under is for cards but I wouldn't ever put money on anything > 2 tbh.

    When one referee makes (or doesn't make as in this case) calls in a certain way you can question his judgement. When more or less all the referees in the tournament makes the same decisions in game after game it's the instructions one has to look at. I'm no fan of the way this tournament is refereed (I didn't like 2014 either) but unfortunately there is way too many "real" football fans that screams to high heavens when about the game being ruined when a player gets sent off/suspended for anything that doesn't force the opponent to an hospital and thus FIFA have chickened out and opted for this approach. IMO it will mean less goals and more injuries but it's not my choice to make and I won't fault an individual referee for following how he's been instructed to act.

    I'd disagree, no way the arm ended up that high by accident.

    That's basically what the laws do currently.

    While I agree that this is somewhat of an issue for the VAR system to overcome I 'll also say that you are talking about the opinions from some fans. If you show this situation to referees you'd get well over 99% calling the penalty.

    This isn't exactly true to procedure, the referee isn't supposed to initiate a review (but he can in some instances). A more correct way to put it is that the VAR didn't refer it back to the referee to review so presumably the VAR didn't consider it to be a clear error to not award a PK.
