ENGLAND were the losers in a first glimpse into how the VAR will work at the World Cup in Russia as Italy were handed a 1-1 draw care of an 87th minute penalty.

The technology was called upon at Wembley as attacker Federico Chiesa went down in the area under a challenge from England debutant James Tarkowski.

Referee Deniz Aytekin hurried over to the pitch side monitor to deliberate on the decision with the help of the video assistant, before pointing to the spot in dramatic scenes at Wembley.
