Vastavam web: FIFA President Gianno Infantino vowed today to crack down hard on racist incidents when Russia hosts the World Cup next year.”This is a very high priority and we will make sure no incidents will happen,” Infantino said in a video statement.”It is absolutely not tolerable and we will be very, very firm on that, so we can expect fair play in Russia.” Infantino said the 2018 World Cup will be the first at which referees will be allowed to halt or even abandon matches should anything similar happen during matches.
“We expect fair play in Russia,” he said.Russia’s preparations for the tournament have also been marred by doping allegations that might see the country banned from the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in South Korea’s Pyeongchang.But he stressed that all players on every team knew in advance that they would be tested “in competition and out of competition” in Russia.
Infantino also pushed ahead with his campaign to employ virtual assistance refereeing technology at the World Cup for the first time.”I think that it is absolutely normal that in 2018, we can explore and see how can help the referee and the team to take the right decision.”
