  • Portugal ready for ‘tough battle’ with Iran

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.

Spain and Portugal were largely expected to finish in this order in this group, but not like this.

Sardar Azmoun's header was blocked by Cedric Soares' arm, with referee Enrique Caceres again opting not to point to the spot.

Adrien Silva, Quaresma and André Silva earned their first starts of the tournament, meanwhile Iran called on the return of AZ Alkmaar's Alireza Jahanbakhsh for their must-win game.

Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo let his team down with a missed penalty, and an elbow against an Iran player that could have easily resulted in a sending-off, but has enough fan goodwill stored up already, says RT's Peter Schmeichel. The review showed Mbark Boussoufa had played Aspas marginally onside and the goal was awarded, with major consequences as Spain moved ahead Portugal at the top of Group B.

With Fortnite Playground Issues Continuing, Epic Replaces Another Limited-Time Mode

A new record was set on Tuesday [NZ time], when referee Enrique Caceres gave one to Portugal, then one to Iran during their 1-1 draw at Mordovia Arena in Russian Federation, the 19th and 20th penalties of the tournament.

Early in the second half, a video review led to a penalty kick for Portugal when Saeid Ezatolahi was judged to have fouled Ronaldo. He marked the occasion with a saved penalty too.

"When there is a penalty, everything becomes more warm in the pitch". He complained that Ronaldo gets star treatment.

In stoppage time alone, VAR interventions allowed Iran to knot the game on a dodgy penalty call and Spain to keep its tying goal when Iago Aspas was (correctly) ruled onside.

"I need to know if I am grandfather or no". "It's a red card".

US Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy announces retirement
President Donald Trump is expected to nominate a more conservative replacement, giving the right a five-four majority. A traditional conservative, he advanced gay rights, reinforced abortion rights and erased political spending limits.

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

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

If you implement VAR then to make mistakes is not human.

The VAR system also has one big element in its favour: coaches have absolutely nothing to do with it. The referees on the pitch, they are. washing their hands.
