Why VAR Refused To Review The Bonucci's Foul On Busquets That Lead To His Red Card

There have been several reactions concerning the VAR final decision on the Referee's decision to give Bonucci a Red Card after a foul on Sergio Busquets.

It was a brilliant performance from the two teams as they showed class in the first 10 minutes of the game. Spain started the game with 4:3:3 formation but later changed to 3:4:3 formation with Alonso and Azpilicueta running the wing back position.

A beautiful goal from Manchester City striker Ferran Torres gave Spain the opening goal of the match in the 17th minutes of the game.

The Manchester City striker have been impressive for Spain national team with more than 6 goals in 10 games.

Italy captain Bonucci was sent off in the 42nd minutes of the game after a silly foul on Sergio Busquets. Bonucci received his first yellow card of the match in the 30th minutes of the game before receiving the second yellow card that lead to the Red Card.

The Video Assistant Referee was right not to review the incident because it was a clear yellow card offense from the Italian captain. If it was to be a straight Red card, the VAR would have reviewed the incident but due to the nature of the foul, with or without VAR, it is a yellow card offense.

The Juventus defender Intentionally hit Sergio Busquets on the neck despite receiving a yellow card in the 30th minutes.

The Video Assistant Referee have no reason to review the incident because the Referee made the right decision to give Bonucci the second yellow card which lead to the Red card.

Spain took the Red card advantage to score the second goal in the last minute of the first half. Ferran Torres doubled the lead through a brilliant header.

A consolation goal by Lorenzo gave Italy a lifeline in the game but Spain solid defense prevented them from getting the equalizing goal.

Spain will be playing the winner between France and Belgium in the Second Semi final match on Thursday night.
