This is why var is corrupt. Pick and choose when to check things.
VAR is there to ensure consistency - by the letter of the law, if you get slapped in the face then it’s a foul, that’s the “consistent” way to apply the laws of the game, nuance be damned. At this stage I’d do anything for a bit less consistency from the refs if this is how every game with VAR is going to go.No consistency.
It seems like it's just whenever somebody at var decides.
Probably got bets on the minute of the first goal.
