VAR used for first time in World Cup final

MOSCOW: The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) was used for the first time in a World Cup final to award France a 38th-minute penalty which Antoine Griezmann scored to give them a 2-1 lead over Croatia on Sunday. Referee Nestor Pitana was alerted to a possible handball and after checking the off-field screen he decided Ivan Perisic had handled the ball in trying to clear a French set-piece.

FIFA has declared the use of VAR at the World Cup in Russia a success. (Reporting by Mark Gleeson; Editing by Ed Osmond)
