    Iran's coach strongly questions the Video Assistant Referee at the Russia World Cup

    Queiroz and his squad have been at the “mercy” of VAR during this Cup including having a goal scored by Iran disallowed in stoppage time against Spain last week

    The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) used in the Russia World Cup has been praised by many, but also strongly criticized by some. One of those who does not see the benefit of VAR is Iran’s coach, Carlos Queiroz. The Portuguese-born manager says the new system has not only created confusion but also, according to him, taken the game away from the fans.
