Marco Silva has called on to introduce VAR in all FA Cup matches following Everton’s surprising defeat at the hands of Millwall.
The match looked to be on its course to a replay at the Goodison Park but a last ditch attack from the Championship outfit resulted in a winner as Murray Wallace found the net in the added time to pile more misery on the Toffees.
Everton looked pretty ordinary as the Merseysiders failed to create much creativity in this FA Cup tie. They only managed to register two shots on the Millwall goal and both of them were converted by Richarlison and Cenk Tosun. But Referee couldn’t address Jake Cooper’s handball which could have changed the fate of the game.
Silva reacted pretty angrily after the match. “It doesn’t make sense.
“If we have to be fair with all the clubs and the competition – we have to do it for all the games. We were winning 2-1 at that moment and it made a big impact on the pitch. We need to put VAR in all the stadiums.
“Seven or eight players saw the handball and it’s difficult for us about how the referee or his assistant cannot see. Then 1,000 people can see it on the big screen but the referee didn’t see – it’s really strange.”
