On-field instant replay will be used at the World Cup for the first time in 2018, when Russia hosts the tournament.
This was confirmed by FIFA President Gianni Infantino recently.
Video replay came to American football years ago, filling out professional stadiums in 2007 and college-level ball in 2010. Ref-assisting technology started trickling into soccer thereafter, with FIFA finally bringing goal-line tracking games in 2012 and video replay into general matches last year.
It is expected that on-field replay will prevent the controversies that have haunted past World Cups.
