A curious VAR mission heated the minds in Denmark on Sunday. FC Copenhagen equalized against Aarhus - long after the final whistle.
With a 3: 3 in a direct duel, fourth in the table FC Copenhagen at least kept the two-point deficit on third in the table Aarhus GF. But that was only part of the story of this Danish chase duel.
The 3: 3 equalizer fell minutes after referee Jörgen Burchardt had blown the whistle - actually. While the guest players and those responsible were already celebrating the away win, Burchardt ran to the monitor on the sidelines and suddenly decided on a penalty for Copenhagen.

Flamengo lost at FC Sao Paulo (2-1), but still won the title because their pursuers Internacional Porto Alegre, who were two points behind, only got a goalless draw against SC Corinthians. The goal for Flamengo was scored by ex-Wolfsburg Bruno Henrique.
The referee admits his mistake
The AGF cheers turned into protests, but they didn't help. FCK attacker Jonas Wind, who had already taken the 1-0 lead, safely converted the controversial penalty to the final score in the eleventh minute of the original six-minute stoppage time and made the comeback of his eleven perfect. Last year's runner-up was already 3-1 back at the break.
referee Burchardt later admitted his mistake: he should have waited with the final whistle until the VAR had checked the last scene, he said on Danish TV. "That was anything but good."
