Video Assistant Referee system used for first time in World Cup history

The Video Assistant Referee system was used for the first time in World Cup history on Saturday, when France were awarded a penalty against Australia.

 

Antoine Griezmann went down after a tackle in the penalty box in the second half of the Group C fixture.

The referee did not award a spot-kick but the VAR officials ruled after a review that it was a penalty and Griezmann gave France a 1-0 lead.
