The World Cup has got off to a brilliant start.

We're yet to see a 0-0 in the tournament, Cristiano Ronaldo has already delivered one of the World Cup's greatest moments and the underdogs have really turned up.

Mexico, Iceland and Switzerland have all taken points off Germany, Argentina and Brazil, with plenty more surprises surely to come before the knockout rounds.

And in the studio, ITV pundit Slaven Bilic has been winning over everyone.

West Ham's former player and manager has really excelled analysing the games, with many praising him for his expert knowledge on all the teams, regardless if they're household names.

But the Croatian hasn't just impressed with his football knowledge, he's also delivered some comedy as well.

And Bilic really outdid himself after Brazil 1-1 Switzerland, delivering a one-line response that went down an absolute treat on Twitter.

He was asked about the VAR decisions during the match and his reply was just epic.


Says a lot when even Roy Keane is having a bit of a giggle.

Bilic's response really spoke on behalf of the footballing community, with most fans already tired of the VAR-obsessed coverage in the studio.

The new technology has worked pretty well up until now, but both BBC and ITV still seem to discuss it at length regardless.

Gabriel Jesus' penalty appeal was correctly rejected, while the shove from Steven Zuber on Miranda for Switzerland's equaliser was not enough to warrant a foul, two more correct decisions.

Miranda himself didn't help matters after the game, stating that he believed he should have gone down after the contact.

"Maybe, if I had thrown myself, I could point to the push," the centre-back said to Globo Esporte.


​​"There's the video referee, they've seen it, but they did not think it was for that.

"The draw does not shake us, big teams have also started by losing. Our thinking is game by game."

Sadly, this is just the start of the VAR coverage for the World Cup.
