    The yellow for Kante ? Not obvious.

    The dive from Griezmann ? I'll watch this during half time, because i didn't thought there was no fool on first watch...

    We know the specific situations that VAR can be used for. Final or not, VAR cannot be used for free kicks

    Penalty scored. Don't see how that's a penalty. Yes it hits the hand. But it's unintentional.

    Debatable penalty, nicely taken by Griezmann.

    Seriously, it a hand away from body that prevevents the ball to go in front of the goal. It's a no brainer.

    Which makes no sense when a great % of goals scored come from free kicks nowadays.

    In a world cup final there's no excuse no to use it IMO.

    The fact that the ball hit his hand doesn't automatically mean it is a handball... I'd say that was totally the wrong call - defenders are entitled to jump for the ball and their arms can't just magically disappear.

    The refs and VAR have got this wrong several times in this WC.

    Nope. It's a case of was it deliberate? That, as they say, is subjective.

    IMO was ball to the hand not hand to the ball. Perisic was in mid air. How will players jump without their arms in the air?

    Piquet was hand to the ball. This is not the same. In doubt, the ref chose to call it a penalty. But after the way France got the first goal, this game is ruined IMO.

    Maybe in the future it'll happen but the rules can't be altered for one match. We knew VAR wasn't going to cover everything.

    The VAR can communicate to the ref if a gross mistake is made. They have immediate access to replays and saw the dive before we did and also before the free kick was taken. It's a no brainer.

    Handballs always have had a grey area. They should make the definition more concrete. Unintential handballs should not be punished with a penalty in the modern fastpaced game.

    What should have been penalised was that ridiculous neymar Griezman showed us.

    He dives and uses embarrassing cringe-worthy celebrations?

    What a likeable fella. Come on Croatia!

    I'd be honest, Crotatia doesn't deserve the current score.
    I hope that either France shows it deserves it and win, or get the result it deserves...

    If someone has a video of that, i'd be grateful, as i only saw it once.

    Edit: @zzz_pt, that ones doesn't show much, it could be a foul as it touch is back feet.

    It's only for red cards/serious foul play, penalty decisions, offside decisions and infringements if a goal is scored, and mistaken identity. VAR cannot be used for free kicks.
