Video review causing confusion for FIFA in World Cup trials

This baffled Brian Kerr, who was not happy with the amount of time the assistant ref had allowed to be played before informing the referee of the offside, and Didi Hamann too was not impressed as he described the incident as a farce.

"We were superior to Cameroon, pressed harder and looked to score more".

Eduardo Vargas thought he'd put the Chileans ahead in the first half but, after some deliberation, the VAR judged he'd been in an offside position when he raced on to a through ball and slotted home.

The first matchday in FIFA Confederations Cup play saw MLS referees at the center of some key Video Assistant Referee (VAR) episodes, as video replay made its debut in the tournament.

"If we can make it a little bit faster it will be good for football", he said. "Without being Mexican and being proud of managing this team, I think I understand the intent [of the chant] and it has nothing to do with [discrimination]".


"Having our goal at the end of the first half disallowed created stress for the players because they were not used to such a situation". "Even if it is the right decision, this has an impact on players' emotions and feelings".

Fifa said its disciplinary committee chairman, Anin Yeboah, had warned "the Mexican Football Federation for the misconduct of a small group of Mexican fans in relation to insulting and discriminatory chants" and said it could take further action in the event of another similar incident.

Under the VAR system, the referee can communicate with two video assistant referees sitting in a room in the stadium with access to all camera channels. The VAR can alert head referees on the field to clear and obvious errors in four reviewable, game-changing scenarios - goals, penalty kicks, straight red cards and cases of mistaken identity.

The International Football Association Board (IFAB), which governs the laws of the game, authorised VAR to be used on an experimental basis in March 2016.
