England drew 1-1 with Italy at Wembley on Tuesday night in their second and final friendly during this international break.

Jamie Vardy’s first-half strike was cancelled out by a late Italian penalty after a controversial VAR decision by the referee overturned his original call, which appeared to be correct.

These were the best jokes from England 1-1 Italy, international friendly at Wembley, with plenty more VAR debate:

VAR. Giving refs the chance to get an initially correct decision wrong. #ENGITA

Can see it now: We're definitely getting knocked out of the World Cup due to a dodgy VAR decision. #England #ENGITA

If VAR is here to stay, I want a television rolled onto the pitch, like at school. And the referee has to ask one of the players how to work the video pic.twitter.com/2eOAm7G3dj

If only we had VAR to stop decisions from clueless referees who make stupid decisions using VAR #ENGITA

Apparently, that blow left John Stones not knowing who he was, so they took him off. They should have told him he was Bobby Moore and told him to carry on. #engita #EnglandvItaly
