Douglas Luiz's Red Card At Tokyo Olympics Branded 'The Worst VAR Call Ever'

Douglas Luiz's red card during the Tokyo Olympics clash between Brazil and Ivory Coast has got fans talking online, with some calling the VAR decision 'the worst ever'.

Aston Villa midfielder Luiz received his marching orders just 14 minutes into the Group D match on Sunday.

The 23-year-old was adjudged to have committed a foul on an Ivory Coast forward, who ran through on goal.

The match referee brandished a yellow card despite minimal contact between the two players.

However, he changed his decision following a controversial VAR review - sending off Luiz after re-watching the incident.

Needless to say, fans on social media couldn't believe Luiz's red card, slamming the decision to send him off.
