Knocked-out Moreirense goalkeeper discovers in post-match interview that VAR saved his clean sheet
Relegation-threatened Moreirense are battling for their lives in Portugal's Primeira Liga, and hosted leaders Porto on Tuesday night.
To their credit, they held out deep, deep into stoppage time – only for Abdul Waris to scramble in a winner with effectively the last kick of the game... and knock out home goalkeeper Jhonatan in the process.
Well, that's what everyone thought anyway. After a weekend of repeated vilification (in England at least), the VAR got to play hero, deeming Waris to have been offside, ruling out the goal and handing Moreirense a precious point.
Not that Jhonatan was aware, though. DIzzy and beaten, he stumbled into the post-game interview, equipped with all the usual platitudes after defeat – only to be found out there and then about VAR's intervention.

Really, this is just an inversion of that notorious Geoff Shreeves/Branislav Ivanovic "conversation" a few years ago...
