    VAR & Goal-line technology at the FIFA World Cup 2018

    Video Assistant Referees, better known as VAR, will make its FIFA World Cup debut this summer. It's a team of assistant officials removed from the on-field action, operating from a centralized video room in Moscow to help the head official on difficult calls. VAR is going to bring some changes to World Cup play, but only in an advisory capacity. At the end of the day, the head official will be the one making the decisions from the field. They're there to avoid game-altering mistakes, not micromanage the match.

    Here are a few things you should know about VAR:
    What plays are eligible for video review?

    Goals and plays during the build-up to a goal: This one should be pretty obvious. Goals and, in particular, the moments preceding a goal will be reviewed. With soccer being the low-scoring game it generally is, it's essential to get these calls right. Therefore, infractions before a goal can be reviewed, as can the goal itself. This includes whether or not a ball went out of play, an offside, or a missed foul by an attacker that leads to a goal.

    Penalty decisions and plays during the build-up to a penalty: With penalties having the capacity to completely swing a match, fouls that occur within the box will also be subject to review. Here's an example that we got in March in a friendly between England and Italy. The Italian side was awarded a penalty thanks to a replay decision in the closing minutes of the match. Italy scored the PK and settled for a 1-1 draw against England.

    VAR will take a look at if a penalty occurred and if it occurred in or out of the box. It will also look at offsides prior to penalties and if an attacking foul led to the penalty.

    Direct red-card decisions: A direct red card not only serves as an ejection, but it also serves as a one-game suspension which is served the following match. For reference, think of this a bit like targeting in college football. The card will be given on the field, and then the play will be reviewed. If it's upheld, the offending player will be booted from the match, just like any other red card. Otherwise, it'll be enacted as a normal penalty. This will keep players on the pitch if a call looks worse in real-time than it actually is. Note: This will only apply to direct red cards, so if a player is kicked out for two yellows it will not be reviewable.

    Mistaken identity: As rare as it is, mistaken identity can happen. That's when the wrong player is assessed a card or, worse, sent off from a match. Making this reviewable will allow officials to assess punishment to the proper players.

    Offsides: If you're a casual fan, you're going to hear people yell this word a lot throughout June and July, and a lot of the time they'll be wrong. Offside is when an attacker (or forward) is past the last defender towards the opposing goal when a ball is struck. If you played in a rec league, it can be referred to as "cherry-picking." A player can be past the last defender, but only after a ball is hit.

    This goes back to goals that can be reviewed, but offside is one of the trickiest calls in soccer to get correct. Different angles, if a line judge is even a step back of the action, can lead to missing an offside call. VAR will let officials go back with a superimposed offside line and look to see if a player broke at the proper time and was able to stay onside. Multiple angles for VARs will allow them to see if it's just a matter of perception causing a player to appear offside, or if he actually is. These calls come down to inches, so they need to be certain to call it one way or the other.
    How does the referee signal a video review?

    There are two signals that referees have to communicate that they're talking to VARs. The first way is informal, and is when the official is holding his hand up to his ear.

    An official signal for video review looks like this:

    Once that box signal is made, play stops and the official goes "to the booth," so to speak.
    How does the review process work?

    1)Incident occurs
    2)Video assistant refs review the play and sends information to the head official.
    3)Head official has three options: Accept the VAR information; review the information himself; come to a verdict.

    VAR will, once again, be talking in the official's ear. They can then suggest that play is stopped if they see something off on the monitor. Once the official makes the box signal shown above, the VAR will communicate with and advise the official. After that step, the official can either take the VAR info at face value, reevaluate the call and look for himself, and then make a decision based on the information.
    Is there an actual replay booth similar to other major American sports?

    The referee review area, or RRA, is less a booth than it is a space. Found near the technical areas, it's a clearly marked area that contains a single mobile screen for the referee to look. The referee will be in contact with the VAR team throughout the review, but he won't disappear from sight.

    Can the head ref and VAR disagree on a call?

    VAR is going to have moments where it sees something different from the head official. Slow motion has that effect on calls. Ultimately, it's the head ref's call. When review is all said and done, the head official can accept or reject the information that the VAR gives him. In other words, he can either amend the call, or stay with what was called on the field. VARs are advisory, they are not the end-all be-all.

    The VAR team is constantly monitoring the action, looking for plays worth bringing to the attention of the head official. Although most of what they're doing is watching passively, they will tell the official if a noteworthy play worthy of review comes up.
    What kind of evidence is needed to overturn a call?

    Although FIFA isn't specific about how calls will get overturned, the review will be used to rectify "clear and obvious errors" alongside "serious missed incidents." This is VAR's inaugural World Cup, and the hope is presumably that it will call the game better but won't mess with the flow of the game itself.
    What kind of effect will VAR have on the length of matches?

    VAR is being implemented with the intent of being as non-invasive as possible. That means that officials are going to work quickly and cohesively to make sure that these calls are corrected or confirmed in a timely manner. VAR may tack a few minutes onto stoppage time to make up for delays, but it shouldn't go on for extended periods of time.
    Will this stop fans from critiquing calls made by officials?

    Of course not. No one is ever happy with the way games are called, and the losing team always got a raw deal while, if you're on the winning team, "there were bad calls both ways." The fact is, VAR is being used to streamline matches and get more calls correct. No system is perfect, especially in a game such as soccer. But ultimately, soccer is feeling the pressure to embrace modern technology. No, fans won't be happy. It all comes down to getting the important calls right.

    World Cup 2018: Assistant refs to keep flag down for tight offside calls

    World Cup assistant referees have been told to keep their flag down for tight offside calls to enable VAR to make the correct decision, says Fifa referees committee chairman Pierluigi Collina.

    Russia 2018 will be the first World Cup to use the video assistant referee system.

    "If you see some assistant referee not raising the flag it's not because he's making mistakes," said Collina.

    "It's because he's respected the instruction to keep the flag down."

    Italian former referee Collina was speaking at the World Cup referees media briefing on Tuesday.

    "They were told to keep the flag down when there is a tight offside incident and there could be a very promising attack or a goal-scoring opportunity because if the assistant referee raises the flag then everything is finished," he said.

    "If the assistant referee keeps the flag down and the play goes on and maybe a goal comes at the end, there is a chance to review the goal using the technology."

    Fifa president Gianni Infantino confirmed in March that VAR would be used in Russia, having been used in Germany and Italy and trialled in in some domestic English cup games last season.

    The VAR - a current or former top referee - is in place to check decisions on four sorts of incidents:

    • Goals, including 'missed' attacking offences in the build-up


    • Penalties awarded and not awarded, including 'missed' attacking offences in the build-up


    • Direct red cards


    • Cases of mistaken identity where the wrong player is shown a red or yellow card


    • The referee can accept the information relayed through his earpiece by the VAR team, an option usually reserved for objective calls of fact, such as if a player is offside.


    For more subjective decisions such as red cards and penalty-area fouls, he can review the footage on a pitchside television monitor before deciding whether to change his initial call.

    Replays of incidents reviewed by the VAR will be shown on big screens during the World Cup and the crowd will also be told when a decision is being reviewed and why a decision has been reached.

    However, the replays will not be shown inside the ground while the referee is making a decision, only afterwards, so the official is not influenced by the crowd.

    Goal against Brazil today, should not have been allowed. why ref didn’t check with VAR??
    - not clear what is protocol? Seems like on ground ref can make the call and that too before he delivers his verdicts. Officiating was horrible in Brazil’s game, rocky ref screwed the game

    England striker Marcus Rashford says the use of video assistant referees must improve during the World Cup.

    England had two appeals for penalties rejected after captain Harry Kane appeared to be pulled down in their opening 2-1 win over Tunisia on Monday.

    Rashford, a 68th-minute substitute, said: "There are certainly some decisions where they have to at least check to see if it is a penalty or not.

    "It does need improving and I think it will improve over time."

    He added: "The idea of bringing VAR into the game is spot on but there is something to improve on."

    BBC Sport understands both incidents, which took place at corners, were checked by the video assistant referee.

    France, Sweden, Peru and Egypt have been awarded penalties at this World Cup after the video assistant referee prompted the referee to review footage.

    Kane scored twice, including a stoppage-time header, as England went second in Group G behind Belgium on goal difference.

    England had 61% of possession and had 18 shots but missed several clear chances.

    Rashford added: "We created a lot of good chances and the final bit was just missing in the first half, but the performance was as we had planned and to get through the game is good for us.

    "If we are creating that many chances - and who is to say we won't do that again? - we want to be as clinical as possible.

    "But we do have to improve that if we are going to win the tournament."

    Kane, 24, has scored in each of his past four games - his longest consecutive goalscoring run for England.

    He has now scored 15 goals in 25 appearances. The last player to score more in their first 25 games was Gary Lineker with 20.

    Rashford said of Kane: "He has been a brilliant leader for us leading up to the tournament and starting the tournament.

    "He leads by example, he is a top forward and his career is only going to go up and up. He is very young and he will keep improving, so who knows how good he could get?

    England face Panama in Nizhny Novgorod at 13:00 BST on Sunday.

    Brazil's penalty was overturned on VAR! Watching it live, I thought it was a clear penalty. However after seeing the replay, seems it was 50/50 as Neymar being the drama queen he is went down too easily.

    Earlier in the match, there was also a penalty that should have been given to Brazil that was never referred. This should have been looked at.

    VAR has grabbed centre stage at the 2018 Soccer World Cup, with the system that was supposed to provide "minimum interference" instead having a major and highly controversial impact.

    The final games in Group B on Monday were heading into injury time with Portugal on course to top their group and Spain set to finish second, when the advice of the Video Assistant Referee officials in two separate games changed everything.

    In Kaliningrad, Spain were awarded an equaliser to snatch a 2-2 draw against Morocco when an Iago Aspas goal was given after VAR helped Uzbek referee Ravshan Irmatov to reverse a mistaken offside call.

    At the same time in Saransk, Paraguay official Enrique Caceres was persuaded to give Iran a penalty for a handball by Portugal's Cedric Soares that could hardly be considered deliberate.

    Karim Ansarifard netted the spot-kick, earning Iran a 1-1 draw, and relegating the European champions to second place in the section.

    Now Cristiano Ronaldo and his team must face Uruguay in the last 16. In contrast, Spain will probably be happier with a tie against hosts Russia in Moscow and could now have a theoretically easier path to the final.

    That hardly sits well with FIFA's statement as they introduced the new system to the biggest tournament on Earth, saying: "Our goal is minimum interference for maximum benefit."

    Of course, that was a reference to the flow of the game itself rather than the potential impact decisions could have further down the line.

    Morocco's Noureddine Amrabat made clear his feelings at the end of Monday's game as he looked into a television camera and mouthed: "VAR, it's ********".

    But while Spain's equaliser was correctly given, the decisions in Saransk were more controversial.

    Ronaldo missed a penalty awarded after the referee reversed his decision, and was later shown a yellow card following a review of a possible elbow offence.

    It had the look of a fudged decision when an elbow would normally lead to a red for violent conduct.

    "An elbow is a red card in the rules. In the rules it doesn't say if it is (Lionel) Messi or Ronaldo," fumed Iran coach Carlos Queiroz, who said VAR was "not going well".

    Iran are now out, and they leave a competition that is being dominated by VAR to an extent possibly greater than the system's critics could have imagined.

    There have already been 20 penalties given at this World Cup, a tournament record before the group stage has even concluded.

    Many of those, such as Andreas Granqvist's winner for Sweden against South Korea, were awarded after confirmation by VAR.

    Yet the Swedes were also the victims of a major officiating error when they were denied an early penalty in their defeat against Germany for a foul by Jerome Boateng on Marcus Berg that was clear on slow-motion replays.

    "If we have the system it's very unfortunate that he doesn't feel he can go and have a look," said Sweden coach Janne Andersson of Polish referee Szymon Marciniak.

    As the International Football Association Board (IFAB), the guardians of the laws of the game, say, only the referee can initiate a review.

    One of the officials in the Video Assistant Referee team sees an incident and tells the referee, who then decides whether to review it. The system is clearly not flawless, and that inevitably leads to frustrations.

    There might also be a concern that reviews of slowed-down replays can make in-game incidents appear worse than they were in reality.

    In addition, the system can still lead to confusion for fans in the stadium who do not have the same grasp of what is happening as television viewers.

    FIFA will have been braced for the criticism, and will defend the system during a briefing on Friday, at the end of the group stage, at which refereeing chief Pierluigi Collina and VAR project leader Roberto Rosetti will appear.

    "It will enable us to present detailed analysis and statistics illustrating the results of VAR during the initial phase," world football's governing body told AFP.

    Not sure why it doesn't work like the tv umpire referral in cricket. The way the referee scurries awkwardly to the mini screen somewhere in the corner of the stadium to have a look at the replay is ridiculous.

    The replay should be shown on a giant screen with a tv referee communication with the one on the pitch. They made it complicated and controversial for no reason whatsoever. It is a system that needs to be revamped; it is not sustainable in its present form, simply too controversial.

    As long as we get the right decision that's what matters but a better system needs to be found. Maybe following the cricket model for reviews wouldn't be a bad idea.

    They should give one review per each half to each team. Referee should refer it to TV umpire just like they do in cricket and hockey.
    Also clock should be stopped when there is interruption during play like injuries and substitutions. This will prevent players from wasting time by using silly tactics, game will be more smooth and we will not need stopage time.

    I agree.I think it's way too inconsistent.For example in the Portugal-Iran match,an Iran player headed the ball onto Cedric's outstretched arm and a penalty was given to Iran.Meanwhile Nigeria were not given a penalty yesterday.I don't think either were penalties,but VAR needs to be standardized.

    I missed few words in my initial post - how it's use "By referee".

    After VAR review, Iran got a penalty, Nigeria didn't; CR got a penalty, Mane didn't - I don't know the solution.

    May be, they can standardize the criteria, upon which a call can be taken. Also, instead of one man, may be they can use the 4th referee and the VAR referee in the process. But, at present, I feel it's being used to protect few teams - that Iran Penalty has made sure that Spain wins that group.

    Forty-eight matches and 122 goals later, the World Cup group stage is done and dusted.

    The route to the final is now clearer for the teams that remain; and it’s when the pressure amps up a little more.

    This World Cup has not disappointed in spectacular moments and incident – the use of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system has contributed to that.

    At a press conference on Friday, FIFA’s referees committee chairman and former referee Pierluigi Collina outlined the use of VAR so far in the tournament.

    Over 48 matches, the VAR system analysed 335 incidents – including all 122 goals – which equates to 6.9 uses per match.

    It led to 17 reviews – 14 on-field requiring the referee to watch highlights and three that applied to indisputable errors for example offsides. Overall, VAR referrals led to referees making 14 different decisions.

    Referees’ decisions were 95% correct without VAR and 99.3% correct with VAR.

    335 incidents analysed by VAR during the World Cup stage
    17 reviews made by VAR
    14 decisions changed by VAR

    Collina hailed its success: "We have always said that VAR doesn't mean perfection - there could still be the wrong interpretation or a mistake - but I think you would agree that 99.3 per cent is very close to perfection."

    Collina explained referees could spend less time making a decision using VAR but FIFA want to ensure that the decision is definitely correct.

    To illustrate why FIFA is so pleased with VAR's introduction, Collina showed reporters clips of four contentious moments during the group stage, complete with footage from the VAR control room and the audio of the communication between the VAR and the referee.

    Asked if FIFA would consider letting broadcasters use this audio during games, Collina said: "Before running you have to learn to walk. I don't know what's possible in the future, but I think it's a bit early for that now. I agree it would be interesting, though, and would perhaps make decisions better accepted by the football community."

    There has been frustration over the use of (and lack of) VAR.

    Collina was asked why England's Harry Kane and Serbia's Aleksandar Mitrovic were not given penalties for being held during their games against Tunisia and Switzerland, respectively.

    Collina explained he would not comment on specific incidents but said: "You might have appreciated that there were some incidents that suddenly disappeared or started to be punished.

    "It's impossible to be right from the start but because we noticed, we intervened, and we fine-tuned. I think you can appreciate things have changed during the tournament."

    In their next match against England were awarded two penalties against Panama for similar incidents that went unpunished against Tunisia.

    I'm surprised Spain weren't awarded a penalty when VAR was used

    It was a penalty.

    They need to be consistent with these VAR decisions.

    Why weren't Brazil given a penalty? Looked like a clear foul by Kompany.

    the ball was out of play when contact was made, so it was a dead ball.

    One can clearly see that the ball was in play when Kompany made that foul

    from what i saw and the analysis i heard, when contact was made the ball was well over the line, the ref may have missed it but the lines man didnt and surly the ref got help from his assistants, so if there was any doubt the ref would have called for var surly, so im sure one of his assitants pointed out it was a dead ball and he didnt bother with var.

    That article has got facts wrong and the ref did make a blunder, almost all post match analysts did say it was a penalty. When Kompany made contact the ball was in play. But what is done is done .

    from what i remember, i think it was out of play when kompany touched jesus, otherwise var would definatly have been called to action.

    anyway it doesnt matter because the ball was going off field and brazil was not going to score if the foul wasnt made.

    It should either be standardised or it should not be used at all.
