The U-20 World Cup in Argentina is one more step for FIFA in applying its VAR live, as Gianni Infantino likes to call him. The new VAR protocol that was tested in the last Club World Cup that Real Madrid won will also be applied in the Under-20 tournament. The VAR explained. The referees of the different matches, when they have to go to the VAR to review an action, will argue the decision they make for the entire stadium.
It is one more step by FIFA in applying a new VAR protocol, in a style very similar to that applied in the NFL, and thus be more open when it comes to explaining the actions taken by referees on the pitch. The explanation will be in English and will be broadcast so that the public present in the stadium and the viewers who follow it on television will know it..
A litmus test for FIFA when it comes to being more transparent and clearer in VAR decisions. Anyway, It will not yet be possible to know what the main referee is talking about with his assistants and with the members of the VOR room when deciding on a controversial move or in front of the monitor. Only the why of each final decision.
