What Iran boss said after Ronaldo escaped a red card

Portugal ready for ‘tough battle’ with Iran

VAR has created headlines throughout the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

The second came in stoppage time, as Iran were chasing an equaliser.

VAR will be trialled in the Premier League in the 2018-19 season but the widespread criticism of the way the technology is being used at the World Cup has been noted by League bosses ahead of the test. Trials will continue in the background of Premier League matches next season, while the technology will continue to be used in the FA and League Cups. As expected, it was Portugal who had the lion's share of the play with Iran, happy to sit back and soak up the pressure, waiting until the thirty-third minute to have their first attempt on goal but Saeid Ezatolahi's header was comfortably gathered by Rui Patrício.

Speaking in his post-match press conference, Santos is quoted by Sky Sports as saying that "it's normal" for Ronaldo to feel this way, as the best players in the world "refuse to fail". Ronaldo then avoided a red card after a VAR referral and Iran were awarded a penalty in the dying minutes of the match which they scored to level the tie. An elbow is a red card in the rules. "Give me a break", he said.

As early as the 3rd minute Ronaldo hit a shot on target, which may have signposted a long night for the Iranians, especially as their keeper Alireza Beiranvand twice dropped the ball in the early stages.

"I don't know what's going on in those trucks, but that's the thing they need to be transparent about and show us".

Casey takes lead at Travelers
Open champion Brooks Koepka (nine under), Zach Johnson (nine under) and last year's victor , Jordan Spieth (four under). The field for the 12th edition of this event features two-time former champion Tiger Woods (2009, 2012).

Think great players can not in this situation be wrong, but it made Lionel Messi and Ronaldo repeated. So the question it is for me, as I said before, it is not about the refs, it's about the attitude and the bravery and the character.

The decisions must be clear for everybody, for the people.

"Players make mistakes, coaches make mistakes and referees make mistakes", Queiroz said.

That hardly sits well with FIFA's statement as they introduced the new system to the biggest tournament on Earth, saying: "Our goal is minimum interference for maximum benefit."Of course, that was a reference to the flow of the game itself rather than the potential impact decisions could have further down the line".

But I think Iran, without any doubt in my opinion, with the discipline, with the attitude, with the way we controlled the game, if there was some justice in football - which doesn't exist - only one victor would have come out in this game.
