The Chilean team debuted in the Copa América in Brazil with a valuable 1-1 draw against Argentina, where he tied the Albiceleste with a controversial penalty after a foul on Arturo Vidal by Nicolás Tagliafico, whose play was questioned by the trans-Andean players but which the referee Wilmar Roldán sanctioned after reviewing the VAR.
And to clear all doubts, Conmebol released the audios on Wednesday at the time of the judge’s decision next to the booth.
In the description of the video he emphasizes that “the referee does not observe the situation and the VAR analyzes the play from different angles, recommending a field review”.
This was the VAR’s dialogue in the prison against Arturo Vidal:
VAR: The player plays the ball. It already falls there, there is no infraction. You have to see the second action.
Referee: Kicks Vidal, then there is a cross with the Argentine defender, very similar to the first half.
VAR: I clearly see that the red player plays the ball and after that the white player recklessly hits the 8.
Referee: Arturo kicks the ball and then there is a cross for a ball dispute, but I don’t see intensity.
VAR: Player 8 plays and then 3 recklessly hits him. I believe that we have intervention for a criminal. I’m going to call him (…) Wilmar, I recommend an OFR for potential penalties.
Referee: Arturo touches the ball and then there is a reckless play in the area. Penalty kick without a card.
