She did lose control. She should have told the players that either they re-start the game, or everyone is getting booked. And the screaming in the face of the England players - she had no control over stopping that either. She was a very very very bad referee.

VAR will work once they iron out the issues. It shouldn't be used to make every decision "perfect" but it should be used to make sure that obviously incorrect decisions are overturned. It should also be used to spot things the referee might have missed (off the ball instances, for example). However, the referee, when contacted by the VAR, should go straight to the screen to review the call. Then, if viewing the video replay doesn't show that the ruling on the field was OBVIOUSLY incorrect (which should take no more than 15-30 seconds, and 1/2 replays) then the original decision made by the referee should stand.

Referees have proven over the course of time that consistently, they are unable to referee games accurately. It varies, marginally, from referee to referee, but generally what we have seen is that it is impossible for one person to accurately referee a football match. Therefore, bringing in additional referees who have the benefit of replays is an excellent idea. The implementation, at this stage, is shambolic, but rarely is anything perfect right out the gate.

Most people just don't like it because they don't like change. "This is the way we've always done it."
