CARDIFF, Wales — The first week of Gianni Infantino's FIFA presidency is set to end with soccer further embracing technology once blocked by Sepp Blatter.
Four years after the International Football Association Board approved technology to rule on disputed goals, the rule-making body is due to experiment with in-game video replay systems on Saturday at its annual meeting.
The use of video would be restricted to referees ruling on whether a goal has been scored, a penalty should be awarded, a player should be sent off or cases of mistaken identity.
Major League Soccer, the Bundesliga and the English Football Association all want to be part of the pilot phase.
FIFA controls half of the eight votes on IFAB, which also features the four British federations.
