Giant Boavista flag prevents overturning of ludicrously offside goal with VAR
Boavista lost 3-0 to bottom side Aves on Tuesday night and, if the match was closer, this would have been very controversial indeed.
One of Aves's goals was clearly offside. No problem, though, because the Primeira Liga is employing VAR this season and a quick check would sort that out.
Right? Right? Oh, no.
Unfortunately, a giant flag was waving in front of one of the cameras at the time - a Boavista flag, no less - and the referee was left with no option but to stick with the on-field decision. Oh dear, oh dear.
