Video ref for France v England friendly



Video refereeing will be tested once more in France's upcoming friendlies against Paraguay and England, the French Football Federation said on Thursday.

The system Fifa boss Gianni Infantino wants used at the 2018 World Cup was tried out during a March 28 Paris friendly between France and Spain for major decisions.

It saw a France opening "goal" correctly overturned for off-side and Spain went on to win 2-0.

France play Paraguay at Rennes on June 2 and England at the Stade de France on June 13 in a prestige friendly.

Football has been slow to embrace video technology in comparison with sports such as cricket and American football, but it is now quickly gaining traction.
