Diego Costa’s equaliser for Spain against Portugal on Friday was the first time a World Cup goal was awarded after a review from the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).

 

The striker’s goal was allowed to stand in spite of a collision with defender Pepe.

 

Costa ran into the Portuguese centre back in the build-up to his equaliser in the 24th minute to cancel out Cristiano Ronaldo’s fourth minute penalty.

 

Italian referee Gianluca Rocchi gave the goal after consulting the VAR team.
