To be fair, Pickford also made a world class save at 1-2 which ultimately helped them get a point.

The offside call on Mane to deny Liverpool's injury time winner though, deary me. Makes me glad we don't play in a league that uses VAR. The hair on his knuckle was offside.

It was too close to tell if it was on or off for the technology as the frame rate isn't sufficient to be accurate to tell if it was or wasn't. The margin of error is too large therefore as the original on field decision was goal as the lino didn't flag so it should have stood.

And people wonder why they are hated so much.

Captain of England coming out with that. More disgraceful than the two calls he is talking about.

I've always maintained decisions should have remained with the match officials, if Fergie wasn't forever blaming officials and players always in their face and those things had been dealt with all this nonsense could have been avoided. let's be blunt some commentators still refer to fergie time as though it was a joke.
no officials intends to make mistakes it's human error and but for the constant replays from all angles by tv trying to prove why it wasn't a goal etc and to justify the money they pay the pundits the game would not be in such a state.
VAR is just a circus for tv and should be sent to the scrap heap along with the sat dishes and let the game return to the fans

And how can a camera tell 100% exactly when the original passer’s boot makes contact with the ball?
