First ever VAR decision EURO

GAME: Wales 1-1 Switzerland, June 12

DECISION: Mario Gavranovic (Switzerland) goal disallowed for offside, 85th minute.

WHAT HAPPENED: Breel Embolo helped the ball on to Gavranovic inside the six-yard box, and he finished well past goalkeeper Danny Ward. The Swiss celebrated what they thought was a late winner, only for the VAR to rule it out for offside.

VAR RATING: 9/10 – Definitely the correct decision. Gavranovic was just ahead of the last defender when Embolo played the ball and VAR came to Wales’ rescue. However, UEFA’s lack of transparency in broadcasting the final VAR offside image loses it a point.

This is history and even if I agree with the decision – it took some points away from me ;-(
