Alisson given TWO red cards but bailed out by VAR as hosts get two penalties overturned

War NewsAlisson given TWO red cards but bailed out by VAR as hosts get two penalties overturned


ECUADOR and Brazil have played out a pulsating draw in World Cup qualifying as the visitors saw an incredible FOUR VAR reviews go in their favour.

The Ecuadorians sit in third place and are close to World Cup qualification.

Casemiro bundled Brazil ahead early on as they maintained their unbeaten record.

And to make matters worse for the hosts, Alexander Dominguez has been sent off for a high boot on Matheus Cunha.

But in a moment of stupidity for Emerson Royal, things were evened up as the Brazilian got a second yellow for a clumsy challenge.

Minutes later, Alisson thought he was the match’s third red card for a high boot, but after a VAR review the referee changed his decision to a booking.

Alisson continued to struggle in the second half when he fumbled the ball, allowing the hosts to smash it into the net.

However, he was saved by the referee’s whistle as the linesman had already flagged to say the ball had gone out of play.

VAR was then called into action a third time when referee Wilmar Roldan awarded Ecuador a penalty, but after review the decision given against Raphinha was overturned.

The hosts did finally earn a deserved equaliser on 75 minutes when Felix Torres headed home from a corner.

And Alisson, Roldan and VAR’s night wasn’t finished there, with the Liverpool goalkeeper conceding a last minute penalty and getting a second red card.

However, he was bailed out by another review, which overturned the decision.

    What a great advert for South American football that was.

    However, it was another contentious night for VAR.

    We hope you enjoyed tonight’s eventful live blog.

    Goodnight from all of us at SunSport.

  • Where they stand

    The shared point puts Ecuador another point closer to Qatar.

    They now sit seven points above fifth-placed Peru.

    As Columbia and Peru face-off tomorrow night, Ecuador’s World Cup spot could get another boost when one – or both – of the teams drop points.

    It could then be all but cemented next week as they face Peru on Wednesday.

    Another awful VAR decision so it’s not just the Premier League.
