The England team believe that Kane was wrestled within the penalty area and so should have earned two spot-kicks, but the referee waved the play on despite VAR being used in the game.

"The penalty incident in the England vs Tunisia game arguably should have been reviewed and would arguably have resulted in no-penalty. It might just say to the referee to keep an eye on it a bit more".

Noting the importance of transparency regarding video review, the CBF then demanded the "video and audio recordings" between the referees and replay officials to shed light on their decision-making process.

Russian Federation selected 11 host cities to be the venues for the matches of the 2018 World Cup and they are Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sochi, Kazan, Saransk, Kaliningrad, Volgograd, Rostov-on-Don, Nizhny Novgorod, Yekaterinburg and Samara.

The absence of VAR in that particular incident was incorrect according to many commentators, with former England defender Gary Neville suggesting that the officials are not capable of viewing the footage quickly enough to ensure the correct call is made.

How has it gone so far?

The Colombian referee, Wilmar Roldan, was heavily criticsed following England's 2-1 victory over Tunisia for not looking in to two penalty incidents where it appeared that England captain Harry Kane was impeded.

Strict warnings that grappling at set-pieces would be punished were also issued, though there has already been clear inconsistencies in this between games - with penalties awarded in some matches, and in others clear incidents going unpunished.
