The UEFA Nations League, League A Group 4 third match last night (Saturday 11 June 2022). Belgium just showed a 6-1 defeat of Poland, winning the second match in 5 games in this game. Berto Martinez has given Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne in charge. The Red Dragon’s trip to Wales lost their second-match losing streak Robert Page. Both offensive lines ‘Gareth Bale-Dan James’  join forces to fight.

         This game in the first half, the visiting team did better, both in possession of the ball, the opportunity to do it, only lacking sharpness. Ending the first half tied at 0-0. In the second half, the visiting team moved 1-0 from the moment that Michy Batshuayi returned to Yuri Tielemans to  kill through the hands of Wayne Hennessey into the minute. At 50, but the hosts equalized in the 87th minute from Nottingham Forest winger Brennan Johnson, who ended the UFABET game 1-1. The ‘Red Dragon’ took the first point and They ended their poor record with just two defeats but they remained at the bottom of Group 4 in League A as before.   

         But at this event, the Belgian manager Martinez was furious. And he claimed VAR’s ‘funny’ refereeing would ruin the World Cup and accused the VAR system of causing his team to miss their win over Wales. Johnson’s late equalizer was initially ruled offside, but referee Benoit Bastian paused the game to check on the replay. These replays cannot be viewed on the big screen during review. But Martinez looked and was displeased with what he saw.

         “It’s crazy,” Martinez said. “We need an explanation from the VAR committee on how the system works. Our two points have been taken away The line to determine if a player is ahead or not doesn’t work, it’s funny . Serious.” “The lineman made a good decision but was rejected by a faulty system.”

         Opponents manager Rob Page also expressed his frustration with VAR after Ethan Ampadu ‘s early shot was also rejected. By being judged as offside, but this work takes a long time to watch In fact, it will be Ampadu’s first international goal that he has already passed the ball into the bottom of the net. But it was forfeited because Joe Rodon was in the offside position when Dan James opened the ball.
