FIFA's referee committee head Pierluigi Collina claimed Friday that 99.3% of "match-changing" decisions were called correctly at the World Cup — "very, very close to perfection" — based on assessments by him and other senior ex-referees
Before the World Cup, there were concerns about referees who hadn't used the system before, about slower games and pedantic rulings on minor fouls.
The VAR crews, wearing full referee kit in a darkened room on the outskirts of Moscow,are urged to view incidents at normal speed so they aren't too harsh on slight contact between players.
