Scaloni outlines VAR 'issue' after Messi winner disallowed in Argentina draw


Lionel Messi/VAR Argentina 2020

Lionel Scaloni called for greater consistency with the VAR after Argentina were denied a winner against Paraguay.

However, the goal was ruled out after a VAR check for a foul that started Argentina's passing build-up, and Scaloni's men were held to a 1-1 draw as they moved onto seven points from three World Cup 2022 qualifiers.

But the Argentina coach wants to see greater consistency from the VAR after his side were denied a winner.

"I think that in some way it is necessary to seek to unify the issue of the VAR," Scaloni told a news conference. "I am not talking in good or bad faith, but to unify criteria."

Regarding a foul onExequiel Palacios, Scaloni added: "We are left without a player for several days or months.The knock was there and VAR didn't review it."

After a slow start, Argentina dominated following Romero's opener from the penalty spot for Paraguay.

Argentina have won just two of their past eight qualifiers against Paraguay, who held on for a point in Buenos Aires.

Scaloniwas satisfied with his team's performance and said they were dominant for long periods.

"In the first 15 minutes the team did not go well. After the penalty I think it was all ours, honestly," he said. "The team reacted, created situations, did what it had to do. We achieved a draw.

"We are leaving with a bittersweet taste because Argentina did everything to win. In the second half, we put the rivals behind. We must also value the attitude of the team, which always believed in achieving victory."

Goalscorer Gonzalez adding:"I think in the first few minutes it cost us a lot but then we got up and came close to winning it. This is the way. We all know it's not my position left-back, but I always try to help the team."
