Infantino Defends VAR At Confederations Cup

20 June 2017

Sunday's two matches at the Confederations Cup produced four cases of the assistant video referee coming into play on incidents which led to goals.

Video reviews led to uncertainty and confusion but ultimately correct decisions as football came to grips with the technology being tested for the first time at a major worldwide tournament.

A total of 34,000 people attended the Portugal vs. Mexico game (2-2) in Kazan, and the Chile vs. Cameroon game played in Moscow saw 33,000 spectators come to the stadium.

Coaches and players at both games seemed willing to give the system the benefit of the doubt, but some also raised the emotional difficulties it can cause players. "Even if it is the right decision, this has an impact on players' emotions and feelings".

Portugal defender Pepe had a goal disallowed for offside after a referral to VAR against Mexico, while Chile forward Eduardo Vargas had a strike correctly ruled out for a very marginal offside against Cameroon.

Vargas, who missed a host of earlier chances, added a second in added time after another video review.
