📰 *RM4*: VAR blunder in Confederations Cup final slammed by Shearer
Referee Milorad Mazic has been slammed by the footballing world following a decision during the Confederations Cup final.
Chile defender Gonzalo Jara appeared to strike Germany forward Timo Werner with his elbow in the second half of the tie, which led to the Serbian official consulting the Video Assistant Referee.
After deliberation, Mazic came to the conclusion that Jara was deserving of a yellow card, despite a red card looking likely. The decision from the official sparked a backlash on social media, with players, pundits and supporters directing their frustration at the man in the middle.
Alan Shearer: "In other words, it's shit?"
Luis Garcia: "Should have been a l red for Jara. Wonder if the pause gave the ref the thought "let's keep 11v11 in a Final ".
