France introduced video technology
Referees in French football's top division are set to be backed up by video technology from next season.

Following a decision taken by the board of the Ligue de Football Professionnel, referees will be able to use replays to assist them on crucial calls, rather than every decision.
Video will be reviewable in the case of goals, penalty calls, straight red cards and mistaken identity for bookings or dismissals, 'L'Equipe' reported.

The International Football Association Board (IFAB) must endorse the use of video technology before the LFP can implement the video assistant referee system permanently.
A number of trials have been carried out and continue to be run in various leagues and competitions across the world, and IFAB is expected to make a ruling at their annual meeting in early 2018.

It pointed out that trials are being conducted this season from the quarter-final stage of the Coupe de la Ligue and Coupe de France competitions.
