The goal-line referees was tested for the first time in during Zamalek and El-Plastic friendly match on Sunday.

This comes following the Zamalek and Misr El-Maqassa controversy when referee Gehad Greisha denied White Knights a second-half penalty-kick.

Head of the refereeing committee  announced earlier this month that the Egyptian FA has approved the use of video assistant referees in the Egyptian Premier League.

“The goal-line official trial during our friendly match against El-Plastic is a good decision and a step towards better refereeing in the league,” said Zamalek director of football Ismail Youssef.

It is worth mentioning that Zamalek coach Mohamed Helmy, who recently announced his departure from the White Castle , led the team during Sunday’s friendly, which ended in a 4-0 victory for the Cairo giants.
