ENG VS HUN: Worst VAR And Referee Red Card Decisions In This International Break

The world cup qualifying match between England and Hungary ended in shambles as the Video Assistant Referee and the Referee refused to give Luke Shaw a straight Red card for a career ending tackle on Hungary's defender in the first half of the game.

Gareth Southgate made several changes from the team that defeated Andorra 5-0 in their last match. It was an entertaining first 10 minutes of football between the two teams but England were better with their tactics.

Manchester United defender should have been sent off in the 24th minutes of the game after a heavy challenge on Hungary's defender.

It was a career ending tackle on the Hungary's player and the result should have been a straight Red Card. Despite the VAR review, Luke Shaw was shown a yellow card and a penalty was awarded to Hungary.

The VAR was wrong not to have ordered the Referee to give Luke Shaw a straight Red Card because it was a career ending tackle and such offenses are straight Red card.

A well taken penalty kick by Roland Sallai gave Hungary the lead in the 24th minutes of the game. England could have easily won the game but poor performance from Harry Kane, Jack Grealish, Foden and Mason Mount made them not to get the total three points.

Manchester City defender John Stones scored the equalizing goal in the 37th minutes of the first half. The England International have been impressive this season and his goal was a typical world class goal.

England had better goal scoring chances to take the lead in the second half of the game but poor finishing from Harry Kane and Sterling denied them the victory.

Southgate will have to wait for next International break before his team can qualify for next year"s FIFA world cup.
