Video Technology Used to Send Off Raphael Varane During France vs England

Video Technology Used to Send Off Raphael Varane During France vs England

Video technology has once again proven its worth after being used tonight during the friendly match between France and England.

Gareth Southgate’s side went into tonight’s friendly fresh off the back of a 2-2 draw with Scotland after Harry Kane snatched a point with a late goal when it looked like a superbLeigh Griffiths double was going to seal an unlikely win for Gordon Strachan’s men.

And Kane started off in the same vein this evening as he scored in the opening ten minutes to put England in front.

France pulled the deficit back though as they went into the break leading 2-1 following goals from Samuel Umtiti and Djibril Sidibé.

But it was short-lived as England pulled one back from the penalty spot, following Raphael Varane’s trip on Dele Alli.

The Real Madrid star was then sent for an early bath after the referee called in his video assistant and judged the 24-year-old to be last man.

Kane then slotted home past Tottenham team-mate Hugo Lloris to level things on the night.


Is video assistants a good thing? Would you like to see them used in the Premier League and Scottish Premiership?
