That was weird. The ESPN announcer saw what happened but whoever is running the world feed cant seem to find it

And now a handball in the box but no VAR followed by a great chance off the crossbar by Palmer. This game is not boring

Wrexham defender looking behind him??? while the ball was still in play in front him and the goal scorer stepped in front of him for the shot.

Similar to the first corner, they just couldn't sort out their marking. And agreed, the goalie can't be stuck on his line there. The ball landed in the 6. Can't let that happen.

How was that not a handball?
I just saw some highlights from the game on ESPN. They didn't show that play but enough to say beyond a reasonable doubt that the lights were horrible. How could anyone see anything clearly?

What is really crazy is that VAR was used in games hosted by Premier League sides but was not implemented for non-PL sites. I understand that the technology wasn't in places like the Race Course Ground (and the FA didn't want to fund it) but shouldn't you just be consistent throughout the whole round at that point.

The Brighton scouting and recruiting teams are incredible.
It’s an excellent organization.

Miserable, this.
