MIAMI (Reuters) - FIFA president Gianni Infantino said on Friday that video assistant referees would be used at this year’s Women’s World Cup in France.

It will be the first time that the tournament will use the system, employed for the first time in the men’s World Cup at last year’s edition in Russia.
