Confederation of African Football (CAF) have confirmed the readiness and usage of the Video Assistant Referees (VAR) from the quarter-finals of the ongoing 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
Souleyman Waberi, the CAF exco member from Djibouti and chairman of CAF’s referee’s commission, told Osasu Obayiuwana of the BBC: “We are very ready. We have used VAR offline (in test mode) for five games in this tournament, starting with the Egypt vs Uganda match.
“Everything has worked well. Refereeing experts from FIFA have checked things and are satisfied.”
The new technology which has been an added assistant for referees was not used in the group stages and Round of 16 fixtures.
