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.

One "clear error" might be overturned every four or five games, Federation Internationale de Football Association head of refereeing Massimo Busacca suggested a year ago.

When exactly is the first day of summer?
The word "solstice" is from the Latin "solstitium" from sol (sun) and stitium (to stop), meaning the sun standing still. There's more heating during our summer, making it hot, less heating during the winter, equating to cold air.

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.

It rejects reforms to the labor market that are at the heart of Macron's plans to modernize France . Many observers suggested voters were tired of elections after four in the space of two months.

It took about 30 seconds for the decision to be announced.

"The VAR tests during this Confederations Cup are also helping us to improve the processes and fine-tune communication". Chile players had done their choreographed goal celebration routine and were moving back into position for the restart when referee Skomina signaled for a review.

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