Anyone watching France vs Spain tonight would have seen a trial of video technology work really to rectify two mistakes the officials made on the park. It has been trialed already in many other countries and games with pretty successful results. Where do you stand on this becoming part and parcel of football?

Reaction on my personal Twitter account tonight seemed pretty mixed but I think it's brilliant. Both decisions took less than 30 seconds to correct tonight and it felt pretty seamless and most importantly, the correct decision was eventually made. The time it takes is often an argument against technology being introduced but both decisions took no longer than it would have had many players surround the ref and protested the wrong decision as is often the case

My stand is that it will likely be the norm. ONly a good thing. It's a shame we can't revoke all the errors from years back jove knows there have been a few.

This is back in the spotlight thanks to being used (failed to be used) in the Confederations Cup over the last few days and my opinion still hasn't changed but I'm seeing a lot of negative comments for it elsewhere

VAR is the future, you're not going to get that sort of accuracy with a referee. People get tired, it makes sense to me.
