Video Assistant Referee (VAR) takes crucial decisions at 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup!

The newly implemented Video Assistant Referee (VAR) has taken crucial decisions in the first two days of the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia.

Every one of the three matches played so far has had the involvement of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).

Be it in the Portugal vs Mexico game, where a goal was disallowed for Portugal on Sunday afternoon or later in the day in the game between Chile and Cameroon.

As per a FIFA release, The Video Assistance Referee (VAR) was used to judge the following situations during today’s FIFA Confederations Cup match between Cameroon and Chile:

First half
– Goal not given due to offside position of the player Eduardo Vargas as judged by Video Assistance Referee

Second half
– Goal given as player Alexis Sánchez not in offside position as judged by Video Assistance Referee

Interestingly one situation where the goal was disallowed and in the second instance the ruling was changed in favour of a goal.

It will be interesting to follow the further decisions when called on of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).
