FIFA-Infantino rules on VAR. It’s ok for the 2018 World Cup

FIFA president Gianni Infantino has confirmed that video replays will be used at the 2018 World Cup.

According to the head of the football association, this technology will be used in Russia in the 2018 World Cup even if it can only review incidents relating to disputed goals, red cards, mistaken identities, and penalties.

Infantino recently spoke at the CONMEBOL Congress in Santiago and stated:

“at the 2018 World Cup, we will have video referees because so far the results are very positive. We are going to help the referee to not make any mistake, or commit fewer mistakes, and we are going to give a bit more of justice to football.”

The VAR system was recently used two times to change the preliminary decisions took by referees on the pitch. In the friendly match when Spain defeated France last month and in the Australia’s A-League which became the first domestic competition to employ the technology earlier this month.
