'It cannot be disallowed!': Neville slams decision to rule out Harry Kane goal

Phil Neville believes VAR technology is being used incorrectly after the former Manchester United ace blasted the decision to disallow Harry Kane’s effort against Sheffield United.

Kane thought he had scored his 19th goal of the season when he levelled the game at Bramall Lane but his effort was ruled out after a VAR review.

Replays showed that Lucas Moura had handled the ball in the build-up to Kane’s goal but the Brazilian had been fouled before he released the ball and he was lying on the turf as the ball hit his arm.

While the rule may have correctly been used, Neville believes VAR was wrong to intervene and says it was ridiculous that Moura was punished for something he could do nothing about.

‘He’s not even looking at the ball Lucas Moura – they cannot disallow that for sure!’ Neville said on commentary.

‘He’s falling over, he could have been fouled himself. He’s on his way down, he’s not even looking at the ball! There’s no intention whatsoever, it cannot be disallowed.

‘I’m sorry I watched the decision last night at West Ham and I didn’t agree with it and I don’t agree with that decision now.

‘Technology is important but we’re not using it right. How can that be handball?! He’s not even looking at it, he was probably fouled.

‘I don’t for the life of me see how that can be given as handball, he’s not even looking at it.’
