Video assistant referees to be used in Egypt
The Egyptian FA has approved the use of video assistant referees in the Egyptian Premier League, according to .

The decision comes after the Zamalek and El-Maqassa match, which saw Gehad Greisha not awarding them a penalty after Maqassa defender Ahmed Samy blocked a cross with his arm inside the penalty area.

“Video assistance for referees’ technology will be applied in within 20 days or a month,” head of the refereeing committee Abdel-Fattah said.

“Referees are to start training on the new technology as soon as possible to be ready to use it when the league resumes,” he added.

The video assistant referees was tested in the 2016 Club World Cup in Japan last December, and caused a lot of controversy as some said that it affect the pace and flow of the game and that human error is part of football.
