Porto want Liga draw annulled after cell phone VAR check - ESPN
FC Porto have demanded Sunday's home league draw against Arouca be annulled after the referee used a mobile phone to check a potential penalty.
With Arauca leading 1-0 after 90 minutes played, referee Miguel Nogueira awarded hosts Porto a spot kick that needed VAR review. Nogueira was called over to the pitch-side monitor, but was unable to communicate with the VAR hub.

After a lengthy delay, Nogueira was handed a mobile phone to address the action with VAR officials. Despite being unable to see any images in the monitor, Nogueira overturned his initial decision and no penalty was given.
