VAR to be used at 2018 World Cup finals

Football laws body unanimously approves Video Assistant Referee system for Fifa World Cup

In Spain, La Liga has confirmed that it will be using this technology for the next season.

FIFA president Gianni Infantino said a final decision on using VAR during the World Cup would be taken at a Council meeting to be held by the global football body on March 16.

But it's pretty much a foregone conclusion.

Video Assistant Referees (VAR) are set to feature at World Cup 2018 and will soon become an integral part professional football after its use was officially approved by the sport's lawmakers. I believe that VAR at the World Cup will certainly help us to have a fairer competition.

However, VAR's use has been criticised by some people who feel it interrupts the flow of a game. How he came up with that decision, I have no idea. Hence one reason why UEFA is refusing to apply VARs in the Champions league next season.

If a "clear and obvious" mistake is spotted, the incident can be reviewed and changed.

Holloway vs Ortega likely for UFC 226
I am not bothered at all because if you look at my resume it is submission, knockout, submission, knockout submission, submission. Edgar either started to pick up on this or was looking to switch up his strategy a bit, since his strikes weren't hurting Ortega.

However, it was also described as a "shambles" by former England captain Alan Shearer after the system's use failed to result in a penalty for Chelsea during their FA Cup replay with Norwich.

The ruling means there will nearly certainly be VAR used at this year's World Cup in Russian Federation, with a final decision expected to be made at the next FIFA Council meeting on March 16 in Bogota.

Data from around a 1,000 trials showed that decision-making accuracy had increased from 93 per cent to nearly 99 per cent.

Ligue 1 in France has already announced that it is planning on introducing it from next season, while the Bundesliga will come to a decision as to wether to implement it on 22 March.

"So far the system has not been a hit with match-goers and their experience has to be central to the improvements needed if VAR is to be successfully introduced".

With frozen fans ironically chanting "VAR, VAR, VAR" during the game, Law said it became the "focus of ridicule" and the "VAR Review" message shown on Wembley's big screens was insufficient in terms of communication.

China warns Trump if its interests are harmed
The Trump administration plans to impose 25 percent tariffs on steel imports and 10 percent on aluminium. The move followed a preliminary finding in August by the U.S.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said: "The first half was a little bit embarrassing for everyone".

"We are going to change the game we love that is why I am open to help and analyse and make it better", said the Spurs boss. "If we lose seven minutes on throw-ins, we can lose 90 seconds to get decisions right". But it's very compelling.

The system is in its trial stages in numerous major football leagues.

The other four votes are shared among the football associations of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, given the sport was first formulated in Britain. The Welsh FA had some reservations, while the Scottish FA was known to be waiting until the meeting to make its final decision, although the decision in the end was unanimous. "Of the 132 Annual General Meetings, this will no doubt be in the top ten in terms of making significant and historic decisions".

"A trial by its necessity involves trial and error", Elleray stressed.

In a statement, the IFAB said the philosophy of VARs is "minimum interference - maximum benefit".

"I have to admit that two years ago I was skeptical concerning the use of the VAR".
