온라인카지노 Soccer is a conservative sport, but it’s different now. After introducing numerous technologies over the past few years, we are witnessing an interesting scene where those technologies collide with each other.
A representative example is the second round of the Knot Out Round between Fiorentina and Braga in the Europa Conference League, a club competition. In the match, which Fiorentina won 3-2 on the 24th of last month, a shot by Fiorentina striker Artur Cabrau caused controversy in the early stages of the second half.
The key was whether Braga goalkeeper Thiago Sa crossed the goal line before clearing a shot from Cabrau. If Kabrau’s goal was recognized, it was a 2-2 tie.
First of all, the referee’s watch indicated that it was a goal that day. Goal-line technology, which judges whether or not a goal is scored with a sensor installed inside the soccer ball, acknowledged passing the goal line.
The problem was the video readout (VAR). I did not trust the goal line technology in the VAR, a representative shield to prevent misjudgment, so I asked the referee to confirm it. The referee overturned the score after checking it directly on the screen.
At that time, Fiorentina not only won, but also advanced to the round of 16 with an aggregate score of 7-2. As a result, this decision was concluded as an error. According to Portuguese media ‘Record’ on the 5th, the European Football Federation (UEFA) admitted that it was a mistake that Cabrau’s goal was overturned.
“The goal line technology worked just fine,” said UEFA Referee President Roberto Rossetti. The ball kicked by Kabrau crossed the goal by a difference of 2 mm,” he said. “It was difficult for VAR to check the situation. It was better not to intervene if the scene confirmed by the VAR was not clear,” he explained.
Rossetti’s remarks are expected to serve as a guideline in similar situations in the future. This means that unless a clear error has occurred in advanced technology, it should be applied in a way that requires less human hands. Soccer, which used to be said to be “a part of soccer,” is really changing.
