VAR Review: For only the second time in the tournament, a referee stuck to his original decision after being sent off on the pitchside monitors – but it is the first time the specific reason for the review has been overruled. In Denmark v Tunisia, the referee noticed a foul in the buildup when reviewing a possible handball penalty.
Siebert looked at the incident from several angles, and ultimately concluded that he had made no clear and obvious error in allowing the game to continue.
There is no doubt that Amartya gets his toe to the ball, the question is whether he fouled Nunez in the process of reaching for it. Some angles suggested that they Uruguay Striker first and then the ball, others were less decisive.
