Anyone know if the two penalty shouts were legitimate? Were we concacaf'd? Any twitter videos? 

The first one I would say should have been given. He played for it, but was legit fouled. Stone cold penalty. 
 

Second one was dicey. He was shielding Davies off the ball and sort of forceful about it. Debatable.

It certainly was, how in this day and age does this tournament not have VAR ? I know some have issues with it but …

Who decides this sort of thing?   Is it a directive from the brass, or is there a vote amongst a bunch of representatives from countries who won't want VAR?

Eustaquio has the ball a meter away from him and just looking at the player and waiting for him to come and go down..almost going down before hes even touched..no penalty

with arfield it would be 4-1..what a dream four it would be arfield buchanan david davies

His head is directly over the ball when he's bowled over. Plus it's immaterial where the ball is, he could have already shot or passed and it would still be a foul.

That’s a penalty IMO. He crashed though the back of him. He knew what he was doing for sure, but it’s no less of a foul.

IMO, Eustaqiuo one was for sure, Davies one is a tough ask but I've seen them given before.

Seen them given against us for sure.  Not sure how anyone could argue the stack one though. And davies is the best player in concacaf, he should get that 50/50 call

No idea , I assume it would have to be something driven those at the top of CONCACAF. Anyone know ?

FYI: The official explanation is that not all Concacaf stadiums are equipped to have an adequate VAR setup.
