VAR for Italy WC qualifiers

Italy are set to contest their qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup with VAR after UEFA agreed to adopt the technology in principle.

Serie A was one of the first European Leagues to implement VAR in 2017, while it has already been used in international football - at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

UEFA has been hesitant to use the system, only introducing it at club level in the second half of last season.

Infantino: 'San Siro like Wembley'

FIFA President Gianni Infantino is torn over the future of San Siro. “There is nostalgia, but then look at Wembley Stadium.”

Inter and Milan have announced plans to tear down the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza and replace it with a new purpose-built arena next to the current site.

However, there have been protests from citizens, fans and the local authorities, who would prefer a restructuring of the iconic venue.

“You have to analyse the situation carefully,” Infantino told reporters at the Festival dello Sport in Trento.

Collina: 'VAR increases excitement'

Pierluigi Collina admits the process has to speed up, but insists VAR “increases the level of excitement” in football rather dampen celebrations.

The former referee is now chief refereeing commissioner for FIFA and spoke at the Festival dello Sport event in Trento.

“Even if it feels like VAR has been around forever, it was only thought up five years ago. In principle, it was meant to be a simple visual aid for the referee.

FIFA: Messi votes not falsified

FIFA has denied claims that votes for The Best FIFA Men’s Award were incorrectly given to Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

Nicaragua captain Juan Barrera said he had not voted, despite FIFA publishing he had backed Messi to take the crown on his ballot paper.

That led Tuttosport to report Juventus forward Cristiano Ronaldo - winner in each of the two previous years - had been ‘robbed’.

FIFA The Best Messi votes falsified?

There is growing controversy over FIFA’s The Best Award because votes were incorrectly given to Leo Messi, according to at least two participants.

Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport have framed this as Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo being ‘robbed’ of the trophy.

If anything, Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk came in second on 38 rank points, followed by Ronaldo on 36, with Messi way out in front on 46.

Eto'o: Racists are hypocrites!

Former Inter striker Samuel Eto’o has mocked racist fans for making monkey noises at players – before demanding a photo.

The four-time Champions League winner was speaking after Romelu Lukaku was abused at the Sardegna Arena in Cagliari, like he was when he played there.

Eto’o, 38, said: “Yellow, black, orange... in the end we’re all the same, and our children should know that. They shout at you like a monkey and then ask for your photo. They have a photo with a monkey.”
