It is fair to say that the Uruguay team isn’t a fan of VAR.

As Uruguay scrambled to extend their 2-0 lead, one more goal would’ve secured qualification, they launched a Hail Mary attack on the Ghana goal. In the chaos, Edinson Cavani powered into the box and went down under a challenge from an opposition player.
Without hesitation, the referee waved it away and VAR agreed, to the shock of the Uruguay team.
After the full-time whistle, the players hounded the referee and his staff down the tunnel. A video has now emerged of Cavani punching the VAR monitor as he made his way to the changing room.
