Video refereeing to be used at 2018 World Cup in Russia

FIFA President Gianni Infantino said that video refereeing will be used at next year's World Cup in Russia.

"We will use video refereeing because we've had nothing but positive feedback so far," Infantino said.

This will be the first time in history that video assistant referee (VAR) technology will be utilised at a World Cup.

VAR can only review incidents relating to goals, red cards, mistaken identities and penalties.

Video assistance was introduced for the first time at the Fifa Club World Cup in Japan in December, the Independent reported.

The system was also used to good effect in Spain's win over France last month in which it assisted the referee on two separate occasions.
