Fifa has installed the VAR (Video Assistant Referee) assistant as one of the main stars of the Confederations Cup. After a little auspicious debut in the World Club, the tournament that brings together the regional champion teams has become a point of controversy.

Confederations Cup

The VAR assistant system first appeared in official matches during the 2016 World Club Championship. National Athletic was punished for this system in the game against Kashima Antlers. The referee Viktor Kassai confirmed the foul in the area and ordered a penalty kick two minutes after the foul. The discussions began with the collection of the delayed penalty kick.

This controversy has been boosted with the presence of the VAR in the Confederations Cup. A goal canceled against Chile and another validated by the system, both by Eduardo Vargas against Cameroon, have become the point of discord. Especially the goal canceled by a very narrow offside, has become the focus of the contest.

How does the VAR work?

According to Jose Borda, an arbitration analyst at Caracol Radio and the program de Canal Uno, the system has a large number of cameras and three referees, who watch repetitions of complex play from a booth. These observations enable the four judges on the field to determine the validity of one of four situations.

Cases in which the VAR wizard applies

This implies fouls in attack, offside actions and other similar offenses. Penalty: Attendees review the actions when a judge pays a penalty kick. According to Borda, this includes cases of fouls outside the area if they are punished as penalties.

Red Cards: Determine the seriousness of the foul when an umpire determines that it is sufficient for an expulsion. Players’ Identity: On plays in which a player is cautioned expelled for a play he did not commit, video assistants may review the action and advise the referee of the actual responsibility.

Despite this, assistant VAR is not the only technological aid that the referees have in this Confederations Cup, according to Borda. Fifa has invested a lot of money in a system to analyze the offside. Before the games measure the court, they put sensors around the field. That is why the measures are increasingly accurate.

In the case of the goal awarded to Vargas, the situation was the reverse. The assistant on this occasion rushed to raise the flag. He was ahead but when they made the pass to Vargas, he had two players between him and the bow he explained. The main advantage offered by the assistant VAR, according to Borda, is that it makes a fairer sport. There are fewer refereeing controversies and the referees have moved into the background said the former international referee.

Explained that now, FIFA is interested in a system that works well, not fast. The instruction is to use the VAR as many times as necessary, and to take the pressure off the referees, to take the time they need. What you should not do is resume the game and change a decision. The idea is that from now to the World Cup of Russia times will be minimized.

Meanwhile, the players must get used to a new pace with the presence of the VAR, which will be basified in the 2017-18 season for the World Cup. Leagues will use it in the next season including those of Italy and Brazil. It will also be used from the quarterfinals of the Liberators. Everything looks for a protocol in the World Cup that determines how to use the wizard.
