This VAR thing seems to be working out well. Can’t believe the game has functioned without it.

A VAR disaster of epic proportion has sent the final of the African Champions League final into total chaos to cause one of the most unbelievable conclusions to a football match you will ever see.

Holders Esperance were leading 1-0 in the second leg and 2-1 overall when play was halted, and after a 90-minute delay the referee awarded the match to the home side.

“The playing and security conditions were not met during the second leg of the CAF Champions League final, preventing the match from reaching its conclusion,” CAF presidential advisor Hedi Hamel said Wednesday following a lengthy executive committee meeting in Paris.

“As a result, the match will have to be replayed at a ground outside of Tunisia... (and) Esperance will have to the give trophy back.” “The match will be played after the Africa Cup of Nations at a date to be determined,” he added.

Of course, that meeting had to be held in Paris.

These guys make the FFA almost look professional.

There was a FIFA congress meeting to re-elect Infantino yesterday in Paris (and following that the Women's World Cup) which is why all the CAF executives were there.
