VAR = ?
Iran vs Portugal — Iran awarded penalty
Portugal were leading 1–0 up against Iran heading into stoppage time. The referee awarded the penalty to Iran despite the fact that the contact was unintentional, and VAR confirmed the spot-kick.
Karim Ansarifard scored to equalise for Iran which moved Portugal to Group B runners-up, after Spain finished their match against Morocco 2–2. The decision to award the penalty could have eliminated Portugal if Iran made it to 2–1 .
Iran vs Portugal — Ronaldo awarded penalty
The spot-kick taken by Ronaldo was then saved by Alireza Beiranvand.
Saudi Arabia vs Egypt — Saudis given second penalty
Fahad Al-Muwallad went down in the box under minimal contact from Egypt defender Ali Gabr with both players pulling their opponent’s shirt.
Salman Al Faraj took the penalty giving Saudi Arabia their first goal of the 2018 World Cup.
England vs Panama — Kane awarded hat-trick
Germany vs Sweden — Berg denied a penalty
The situation is similar to when Harry Kane was brought down in the Tunisia box for England twice and should have earned at least one penalty, and yet the referee did not check with the VAR.
Belgium vs Tunisia — Hazard awarded penalty
Hazard stepped up to score the penalty to give Belgium a deserved 1–0 lead on Saturday.
Serbia vs Switzerland — Mitrovic denied
Referee Felix Brych waved play on, and Serbia went on to lose 2–1, with Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri turning the game around.
