The use of VAR at the Women's World Cup has caused plenty of controversy already, and if today is any indication, that isn't changing anytime soon.

France became the latest victim of official review when a Valerie Gauvin goal was disallowed after the replay allegedly showed she fouled the Brazilian goalkeeper.

Here's video of the play, which came in the 26th minute of a scoreless match.

The reactions to the decision were swift and strong on social media. Everyone seems sick of VAR.

By this point in the tournament it is clear that the VAR use has been a major issue. FIFA has to be hoping this trend doesn't continue.

If a knockout round game is decided because of an overturned call, oh boy.
