VAR slammed as Leeds United denied against Crystal Palace in English Premier League

Soccer pundits around the world have blasted the “worst decision in history of football” after VAR robbed Leeds United an equalising goal against Crystal Palace in the English Premier League.

Patrick Bamford and millions watching at home were certain he’d scored to make it 1-1 at Selhurst Park in the 19th minute, but some controversial letter-of-the-law officiating ruled it out.

Bamford’s feet and body were clearly behind the last defender before he collected a pinpoint pass – but his arms were outstretched and therefore a part of his body was technically offside.

Crystal Palace went on to win 4-1 and fans were left seething alongside the pundits.

Australian soccer pundit Adam Peacock tweeted “Ffs change the law. Feet only”, while Bamford didn’t mince his words after the game.

“I don’t understand the rule,” Bamford told the BBC.
