The VAR offside decision that prevented Jack Grealish from scoring against North Macedonia in Monday’s European Championship qualifier was criticized by Dion Dublin for the length of time it took to complete the review.
At the start of the second half, England were denied an equalizer when Grealish arrived at the back post and Bukayo Saka’s beautifully crafted cross slotted past the keeper.
But while the replays quickly showed to the naked eye that Grealish was clearly offside, the VAR quickly began a ridiculously long check.
Dublin were annoyed that the VAR review took “three minutes” and scolded the match officials over the “crazy” review that led to Gareth Southgate’s team being denied the opening goal.
“Whether it’s offside or offside, I’m sure you can tell with your eyes.” “It shouldn’t take that long,” Dublin said on Channel 4’s commentary.

“Yes, it’s offside, but it can’t take three minutes to realize it’s offside.” It’s crazy, it should take 15 seconds. “Put the ball down and keep playing.”
