My understanding is you can't go that far back to review an incidental foul, do you have a source that says otherwise?
From what point does the VAR check incidents leading to a penalty or goal?
The VAR will only check the attacking possession phase that led to the penalty or goal.​
The starting point will be limited to the immediate phase. The VAR may not go back to when the attacking team gained possession.​
The VAR will consider the ability of the opposing defence to reset, and the momentum of the attack.​


It's a subjective call but I think the ability of the defence to reset was affected by the foul on Gallagher.
