FIFA President Gianni Infantino is hoping video replays will be used at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, as a means to help referees avoid serious mistakes during the tournament.

Infantino spoke to the press after the first Executive Summit of the world governing body said video replays could help with decisions on penalties, goals and red cards.

In March the board approved a two-year trial of a system in which a so-called video assistant referee with access to replays helps the match officials review key decisions.

Australia, Brazil, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal and the United States have all been conducting tests which have said to be positive.

Infantino was elected in February to replace the disgraced Sepp Blatter.
