However, Tottenham had many difficulties before the team from Portugal. Even, "Rooster" was also led and almost lost the match without Bentancur's 80th minute equalizer.
The climax did not stop there, in the last minute of injury time Kane scored a goal to make it 2-1 but the referee decided to refer to VAR technology and refused because of offside. Of course, coach Conte was extremely angry, demanding to have enough with the referee and receive a red card.

Perhaps because he was so angry with the decisions from the referee and the VAR team, after the match, coach Conte left without holding a press conference. Before leaving, the Italian strategist was harsh with VAR technology in this match:
"Obviously the ball was in front of Kane and it was a goal. I don't understand where the line they drew was based. It's difficult to comment on this decision."

"VAR is bringing a lot of disadvantages to Tottenham. Maybe if it was on the field of a bigger team, it is unlikely that they would have denied a goal. I am really curious to know. Obviously there is a lot of unfairness. I don't accept this situation, I certainly can't feel positive."
"We played well in the second half and deserved to win but I understand what happened (refers to the referee and VAR)."
So now Tottenham and I have to wait one more round to decide our fate while we could have done it today. When the referee creates situations like this, he does. cause a lot of damage to a club, as well as a lot of problems."
