Former England full-back Stuart Pearce, speaking on Sky Sports, said VAR does not work for football.In the 22nd minute, Tottenham's Lucas Moura was denied a penalty after Tierney, finger in ear, again consulted VAR.Tierney still went to the VAR to confirm the goal's legality.Minutes later Tottenham's Kieran Trippier was bundled over and Tierney awarded a free kick outside the area, only for VAR to intervene and, after a long delay in which fans were left bemused, upgrade it to a penalty.Celebrating a goal, whether as a player of a fan, has always been sacrosanct, yet five of the seven goals on the night were checked via VAR before Tierney awarded them.Respected Welsh rugby referee Nigel Owens warned that football must use VAR intelligently.
