Is VAR a factor as number of World Cup penalties soar?

The VAR system was tested by Federation Internationale de Football Association in Russia during the 2017 Confederations Cup tournament, held between June 17 and July 2 in four cities across the country, namely at the Spartak Stadium in Moscow, the St. Petersburg Stadium, the Fisht Stadium in Sochi and the Kazan Arena in Kazan.
It was made clear prior to the tournament grappling in the box would be stamped out by VAR - the Video Assistant Referee - but Kane was twice manhandled by Tunisia and failed to win a spot-kick.
England coach Gareth Southgate said after the game that although he had no complaints about Tunisia's penalty, he wondered why "it wasn't one at the other".
"The VAR is still very much a work in progress, but we've seen from the early matches in the World Cup that already a number of penalties have been correctly awarded that maybe wouldn't have been otherwise". You don't want to crowd the referee and say "VAR" because then it is a yellow card.
However, the fact VAR can only overturn a decision which is deemed a "clear and obvious error" means all of those penalties were given and Zuber's goal was allowed to stand, because although the decisions were debatable, they were not clear mistakes. The way they played in the second half is not promising for the next few games in the tournament but in the first half, they created so many chances.
