I’m not sure there’s an optimal outcome, although making VAR decisions quicker would certainly be a start.”. They’ve been in fairly complete control since that Van Dijk error. Or is it? This is another.

The linesman flag was up but what does that really mean any more? 90+3 min: Moutinho ponders a spectacular effort from 30-odd yards out but instead opts to pop the ball over the back four and out for a goal kick.
