FIFA have confirmed that the Video Assistant Referees (VAR) will be used at this year’s FIFA World Cup in Russia.
FIFA’s ruling council confirmed on Saturday morning (AEDT) that they will provide match officials with the technological assistance during the tournament, which begins in June.
Referees are able to use VAR in matches to review and overturn "clear and obvious errors" plus "serious missed incidents" involving goals, penalty awards, red cards and mistaken identity.
"We need to live with the times," said Fifa president Gianni Infantino.
"We wanted to give the referees tools so they can make better decisions, and in the World Cup some very important decisions are made."
VAR has been used in various leagues around the world this season, including the Hyundai A-League.
The Caltex Socceroos open their FIFA World Cup campaign against France on June 16 (AEDT) in Kazan, followed by clashes with Denmark on June 21 and Peru on June 27.
