Cristiano Ronaldo strikes Iranian player in head, almost gets red card

Cristiano Ronaldo strikes Iranian player in head, almost gets red card

"To me, there is a capability issue here over what we're asking the referees in that VAR truck to do", Neville told ITV. 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.

The simultaneous sequences bumped Portugal into second place in the group and Spain into first, thanks to the goals-scored tiebreaker, flipping the group on its head and setting up Spain-Russia, Portugal-Uruguay last-16 matchups.

He said: The reality is you stop the game for VAR and there is an elbow. Portugal were held by an impressive Iran to a 1-1 result, while Spain left it late with the help of VAR to rescue a 2-2 draw - with both games being played simultaneously. Ronaldo swung his arm and made contact with the player's face.

Fans in stadiums about 1,000 miles apart - and millions watching on multiple screens around the globe - were transfixed on a studio outside Moscow where World Cup fates turned on almost simultaneous video replay decisions.

This came not long after Caceres had reviewed, for several minutes, the foul that Ronaldo committed.

"I slept by the club's door and when I got up in the morning I noticed the coins that people had dropped for me", he said.

It warned that Indian companies would be subjected to sanctions if they continue to do business with Iran . Hence, they were just using Tariffs/Trade War as an excuse", he said.

"We learned a lot in Russian Federation, we learned a lot from coach Carlos Queiroz and you can see that our younger players have stepped up their game", the 34-year-old AEK player said. An elbow is a red card in the rules. I don't want to know if my daughter is "a little bit" pregnant or there is evidence.

"But last night, I don't know who was behind the screens and helping the referee but they didn't do a good job".

All of a sudden, VAR had been revealed to be just like any other replay system: a process meant to reduce the number of controversies by correcting human error was now only adding to the controversies because there was still human judgment involved.

"We have to be realistic, we´re going to play against one of the strongest teams at the moment, Queiroz said".

Recall that Iran played a draw with Portugal, nearly knocking her from the tournament.
