According to AFA officials, VAR team member, Mr. Leodan Gonzalez of Uruguay, proposed the arbitration to refer to VAR in both of the above situations and were rejected.

Globo Esporte sheets also give shocking information when affirming the South American Football Federation admitted there were signal problems from the VAR to the referee.
The cause comes from the frequency of the radios used by the referees ‘team suddenly coinciding with the parameters of the security guards’ radio system for Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro sitting on the stands.
Lionel Messi also expressed his frustration: “The referee was tired of dealing with bullshit balls. They didn’t even bother to use VAR. It was incredible. They had no contact with each other. and then things like this prevented us from mastering the match. “
“There are two sets of ball we should have received a penalty. I don’t want to make excuses, but I hope the South American Football Federation will go in and do something. However, there is probably nothing wrong So, because Brazil has everything under control, “said Messi bitterly.
President Bolsonaro was on the pitch to attend the match and when the first half ended, he personally went from the stands to the yard.
