VAR: See how Football Stars responded to Iheanacho's Historic goal


The Nigerian and Leicester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho ran onto a Riyad Mahrez pass to score in the 77th minute of the third round replay, his strike was initially ruled out for offside.

However after little delay the attack was analysed by the VAR assistant Mike Jones, the decision was changed — replays showed Nigeria’s Iheanacho was just onside — and referee Jon Moss awarded a goal.

After the game, in response to the goal scored by him, Kelechi Iheanacho said,

“I didn’t know if I was onside or offside but I agree totally now that I was onside,” 
"I was concentrating on the goal, I didn’t think if I was onside or offside but Riyad told me that I was onside.
“We just waited to see what the decision was.”

Leicester striker Jamie Vardy added:
 “This man got the goals and has shown that VAR does work.”
VAR, can be used to rule over goals, straight red cards, penalty decisions and cases of mistaken identity.
