alexis sanchez came off the bench to set up both Chile’s goals in a 2-0 Confederations Cup win over Cameroon on sunday — but the video assistant referees were the real stars in Moscow.
Crowded in front of screens in a darkened room, they disallowed a goal for Chile’s narrowly offside eduardo Vargas just before the break, then awarded Vargas a goal in similar circumstances late on.
With the video review system getting its first airing in a major FiFa tournament, it brought plenty of tension, but also confusion and bitterness.
