England are ahead in their World Cup Round of 16 tie thanks to a brilliant in-direct free-kick from defender Steph Houghton.

But an incident involving Tony Duggan and Cameroon defender Augustine Ejangue is, without doubt, the main talking point at half-time.

Moments before captain Houghton converted in the 14th minute, Ejangue appeared to spit at her opponent.

VAR failed to detect the incident as many on social media picked up on what happened.

Some have pointed out that Duggan's arm was extended, with suggestions that the incident was therefore accidental.

But some have questioned the decision.

"How is VAR not punishing that disgusting spit by Cameroon player?" said one Twitter user.

While another complained, saying: "Just seen a Cameroon player spit on Toni Duggan, clear as day, she shows the referee the disgusting evidence and they don't use VAR to punish it, ridiculous."

Thoughts on the incident? Can England go on and secure the win against Cameroon?

Let us know in the comments.
