Ronaldo fell for the first time in the 6th minute. After receiving a teammates pick-and-pass, Ronaldo made a continuous stop-and-turn action against the goal. Gelson was completely stuck behind him by Ronaldo. He stretched out his left hand and gently pulled Ronaldos left shoulder. Gerssons pull is not strong, and Ronaldos kneeling posture is exaggerated. But if there is VAR, Gelssons hand movement is still likely to be punished as a foul because he interferes with Ronaldos balance.
Ronaldos second fall occurred in the 52nd minute. In the upper left corner of the penalty area, Ronaldo was caught between three defenders. The Portuguese is suspected to have been slightly stepped on the back of his foot by Sinani. After Ronaldo fell to the ground, the referee still refused to award a penalty.
If the two falls were slightly more difficult to identify, Ronaldo was visible to the naked eye in the 75th minute. Ronaldo grabbed the ball before Gerson, and Gerson wanted to clear it, but he kicked Ronaldo directly from the back because of his slow foot. It was an undisputed penalty foul, but the referee remained silent. Ronaldo protested angrily and the fans booed the referee.
After VAR was launched on a large scale, controversy over this high-tech has been heard. For example, slow down the pace of the game, such as referees sometimes selectively use VAR. However, the existence of VAR can avoid misjudgement and omission to the greatest extent. If there was a VaR in the European preliminary, Ronaldo would have scored his 700th career goal before the penalty spot.
