ESP 1-2 FRA: Why Kylian Mbappe's Winning Goal For France Wasn't Cancelled By VAR

The French National Team were active in the UEFA Nations League final today when they visited the San Siro Stadium in Milan to face the Spanish National Team. The Blues won the UEFA Nations League trophy today as they initiated a wonderful comeback in the match to narrowly defeat Spain 2-1 at full-time.

The Spanish National Team had the advantage in the 64th minute of the game when Mikel Oyarzabal found the back of the net with a powerful effort to make the scoreline 1-0. The French National Team eventually won the match as important goals from Karim Benzema and Kylian Mbappe made the final scoreline 2-1 in favour of the Blues.

Well, here is still an uncertainty about why Kylian Mbappe's winning goal for France stood despite him being in an offside position. Well, his goal wasn't cancelled by VAR because Eric Garcia had contact with the ball before it went into the path of Kylian Mbappe who converted brilliantly from close range. That slight interception from Eric Garcia put Kylian Mbappe onside as he slotted the ball home to give French the UEFA Nations League trophy.

This is a clear and possible reason why Kylian Mbappe's goal stood and wasn't cancelled by VAR.
