Video Assistant Referee Approved For FIFA World Cup 2018

Video Assistant Referee Approved For FIFA World Cup 2018

"This has been adopted and approved and we are extremely happy with that decision".

FIFA World Cup, which takes place from June 14 to July 15 will experience the video replay which will judge various important aspects during the games like crucial goal-line decisions, important penalty calls, and red cards.

Infantino said VAR had been shown to reduce the number of refereeing mistakes in matches where it has been used and would help football become "a fairer and more transparent sport".

Infantino added: "We have two bids in play, one is a joint bid involving Canada, USA and Mexico, the second bid is Morocco".

"Nobody knows exactly how VAR will work". While English Premier League are unlikely to embrace VAR next season, Spain's La Liga and France's Ligue 1 have accepted VAR next season.

"I am not at all against it but we must better explain when it will be used".

"Without VAR, a referee can make one important mistake every three matches".

"We need to live with the times", Infantino said as he chaired a FIFA Council meeting in Colombia. "We will see at the World Cup".

Hacker Adrian Lamo, who turned in Chelsea Manning, found dead
Adrian Lamo , the prolific hacker who turned in Chelsea Manning to the Federal Bureau of Investigation , has died at 37 years old. In addition to the Manning leak, Lamo gained notoriety for hacking Microsoft, The New York Times and Yahoo in the early 2000s.

"The intervention of VAR takes one minute on average in each game".

"The Russians are very committed to this World Cup being a total success", he told a news conference in Panama.

"It's good and necessary that there are changes but it's essential that we don't lose the essence of football", added Suarez.

Federation Internationale de Football Association added that it can not "yet" agree to a request from the Iraqi authorities to host matches in its capital, Baghdad, but Infantino pledged that the application request of the city would continue to be studied.

The decision comes two weeks after FIFA's rule-making panel voted to write video assistant referees (VAR) into the laws of the game.

Iraq has not played full internationals on home turf since its 1990 invasion of Kuwait.

FIFA's ban covered all matches but domestic ones and stayed in effect following the 2003 war in Iraq that led to the downfall of the regime of Saddam Hussein.

India's bid to host the next U-20 FIFA World Cup ended in disappointment as world football governing body FIFA accorded the status to Poland.
