Football's laws body approves VAR for World Cup

Football's laws body approves VAR for World Cup

But clubs are set to block the blanket introduction of the controversial technology to England's top flight following the mayhem at Tottenham's FA Cup replay with Rochdale.

"From this Friday, March 2, the La Liga First Division referees and assistant referees will begin the offline phase of their technical training", the RFEF wrote in a statement. The system remained unused but there was a hint of controversy as despite suspicions of handball in Glenn Murray's late victor for Brighton against his former club, it was not called upon.

Following Saturday negotiations in Zurich, the International Football Association Board (Ifab) have "unanimously approved" of the technology on a permanent basis.

Graham Scott was the video assistant referee and he got a couple of decisions, I think, wrong and he took too long to make his mind up.

But the desire to avoid ferociously disputed calls - especially in high-profile moments - appears to have tipped Federation Internationale de Football Association to support using VAR at this summer's World Cup in Russia.

"It's important because we have to truly help referees who have a very hard job".

It has also just been introduced in Brazil and La Liga will use it from next season.

Uefa president Aleksander Ceferin has said he believed VAR needs more time before it can be more widely used and has already said it will not be used in next season's Champions League whatever the outcome today. English football has also experimented with the system in cup competitions, but it hasn't been a success so far.

While the men's hockey was thrilling, the women's hockey gold-medal game may have been the top story of the Olympic Games . Jaime Anderson took first for the Women's Team with a score of 83.00, beating Canada's Laurie Blouin who scored a 76.33.

But Robson, the former Arsenal player who now commentates on Major League Soccer games in the United States as well as matches in the UK, says the system works seamlessly when the referees know how, and when, to use it correctly.

The system was described as "comical" and "embarrassing" after Tottenham's 6-1 FA Cup win over Rochdale on Wednesday, when a goal was disallowed and a converted penalty overturned. The whole stadium is kept in the dark for minutes on end not knowing what's going on while the players stand around - maybe boiling hot, maybe in pouring rain - waiting to discover the outcome before the game finally carries on.

Fifa holds four of the eight votes on Ifab - the others are split between the four British national associations.

It's a different type of incident and use to the previous three games discussed, but despite VAR being in place the correct decision was still not reached. Fans booed as the half-time whistle was blown after five minutes were added on for video review delays.

The vote was taken at the 132nd Annual General Meeting of IFAB, which was presented with the results of the independent analysis of the use of VAR over the last 12 months from Belgian university KU Leuven.

'I hate all of these games that stop and start, people looking at screens, and, "What's going on?",' said Parish.

At the 2014 World Cup, FIFA deployed goal-line technology.
