FIFA: video technology in use at confederations cup 'must improve'

Written by  Jun 28, 2017

World football governing body, FIFA has said that problems with the video technology system in use at the Confederations Cup must be solved if it is to be employed at the 2018 World Cup. 

The International Football Association Board will decide next March if Video Assistant Referees will be used at next year's event in Russia.

Fifa's head referee Massimo Busacca said the system helped correct six "game-changing decisions” during the 12 Confederations Cup group games.

Busacca also said officials had ruled correctly on a further 29 "major incidents" after referring to the video replay team, and that FIFA was keen to convince member nations to use the technology.

Spectators, players and team officials have complained of being left confused while officials have been making decisions with the help of Video Assistant Referee.
