Coaches express confidence in VAR technology

Rochdale players applaud their fans after the English FA Cup 5th round replay football match between Tottenham Hotspur and Rochdale at Wembley Stadium in London

The game's law-making body the International Football Association Board (Ifab) made a decision to pilot VAR in 2016 and on Saturday is expected to say those experiments have been a success and formally approve its use at a vote in Zurich.

The game's law-makers have chose to give the green light to VAR at Russian Federation 2018 despite the teething problems it has been experiencing in the England.

The Spanish Football League (LaLiga) has confirmed that it will introduce a system of Video Assistant Referee (VAR) for the 2018-2019 season in Spain.

Juan Mata's goal against Huddersfield Town, also in the FA Cup fifth round in front of the BT Sport cameras, was ruled out for offside.

Communication was unclear during reviews lasting minutes instead of a handful of seconds, which was the target suggested in 2016 when the protocol for using VAR was shaped and trials began.

The Premier League says it is "open to considering new technology that assists match officials without disrupting the flow of the game".

The VAR was used at nearly every available opportunity during the first half of Wednesday's FA Cup replay between Tottenham Hotspur and Rochdale. That's what we need to do, be consistent, win games and try to finish in the best condition possible to get one place for the Champions League next season.

The remaining rocks were used to methodically pick off Sweden's until there weren't enough left to catch up. With the King of Sweden and Ivanka Trump looking on - and bolstered by social media messages from actor Mr.

The IFAB took the decision during its 132nd Annual General Meeting held at FIFA headquarters in Zurich, which was attended by the worldwide federation's president, Gianni Infantino, reports Efe.

Comical was another. All because neither fans nor players knew which incidents the referee and video assistant referee were discussing, or how they reached their decisions.

According to the decision, VAR will be used in four specific cases: goals, penalties, direct red cards and mistaken identity. "I am not sure that system is going to help".

Football's lawmakers today gave the green light to roll out video technology, putting the FA on a collision course with Premier League clubs over the most historic and ground-breaking rule change of recent years.

"My verdict is absolutely negative; players don't hug each other after scoring a goal any more, instead they look straight towards the referee", said Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi. Footage from matches at all games at top-flight grounds is already piped into the Stockley Park facility, including more than dozen camera angles.

"The first half was a little bit embarrassing for everyone", Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino said. Or, as is highly possible as things stand now, the VAR official himself makes the wrong call?
