VAR was trumpeted as the panacea for footballing error in the buildup to the World Cup, and yet it was FIFA's contentious new system that ultimately proved Croatia's undoing in Sunday's final.What should be remembered as a fabulous football match will instead go down as an embarrassing snafu where VAR foundered on the grandest stage at the most crucial time.Antoine Griezmann's simulation won the French an 18th-minute free kick from which Mario Mandzukic glanced into his net. And to compound matters, Paul Pogba, clearly in an offside position, impeded Mandzukic as the Juve man headed the ball.Both incidents were summarily dismissed by VAR.VAR may be capable of correcting many things, bad officiating, unfortunately, isn't one of them.
