FIFA World Cup

Was It a Goal? Controversial VAR Decision Sparks Uproar as Japan Sends Germany Home

Yesterday night, a dramatic soccer experience was staged in Qatar where world champions Germany were kicked out of the Fifa world cup.

Germany though they won against Costa Rica did not beat Spain with goals though they had equal points.

On the other hand, Unheralded Japan staged yet another giant-killing act humbling Spain 2-1 to qualify for World Cup round of 16 as the Europeans settled for second place.

Sadly, Germany crashed out despite a 4-2 win over Costa Rica.

During the highly watched Spain vs Japan Match, a Contraversial decision by the VAR has sparked a serious public debate with so many questions raised.

In photos shared by most social media sites, the ball seconds before Japan scored seemed to have gone out of play before a goal was scored.

Well, after several minutes of VAR checking the goal stood after the VAR ruled out that the ball was still in play.

A draw between Spain and Japan would have made Germany qualify due to a higher goal difference.
