the Expected technology in Russia 2018 world cup

It is no longer news that the 2018 world cup was announced to hold in Russia by FIFA president as of then, Sepp Blatter at FIFA's headquarters in Zurich. Russia was chosen to host the 2018 World Cup, and Qatar was chosen to host the 2022 World Cup. Russia is Located in the continent of Europe and of course their first time of hosting the Tournament.The 2018 FIFA world cup will be the 21st.
There are some technology innovations that will take effect in the next world cup and that will be our matter of interest.
FIFA president Gianni Infantino had said that testing is to begin on video technology that could be ready to use at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Speaking during a visit to Moscow to check on preparations for the 2018 football showpiece, Infantino also said the hard graft "starts now" in the crisis-hit country.

But after the International Football Association Board (IFAB), which governs the rules of the game, approved in March the testing of technology to help match officials, Infantino said it could be ready to use at the next World Cup.

"This test video will start now and will take two years. This means that by March 2018 we will see if it works or not," he said.
"I really hope that the World Cup in Russia will be the first World Cup where video refereeing is used to make refereeing maybe better."
The trials will allow referees to call on video assistance to help determine four categories of game-changing moments -- goals scored, red cards, penalties and mistaken identity.
In the experiments, a video assistant referee will have access to video replays during matches and will either review an incident on request or communicate with the referee proactively about an incident that may have been missed by the officials on the field of play.
In March IFAB had agreed to carry out experiments over a two-year period starting no later than the 2017/18 season, although that has now been brought forward meaning a final decision on whether to adopt the technology permanently could be taken before the 2018 World Cup.
Turning his attention to the World Cup preparations, Infantino told journalists: "The work is on track and the commitment is there to get everything done in accordance with the time schedule.
"If I compliment Russia it doesn't mean that as of today or tomorrow Russia can sit down and wait until summer of 2018. The hard work starts now.

Another technology which will be used in the next world cup is the goal line technology.
goal-line technology (sometimes referred to as a Goal Decision System) is a method used to determine when the ball has completely crossed the goal line in between the goal-posts and underneath the crossbar with the assistance of electronic devices and at the same time assisting the referee in awarding a goal or not. The objective of goal-line technology (GLT) is not to replace the role of the officials, but rather to support them in their decision-making. The GLT must provide a clear indication as to whether the ball has fully crossed the line, and this information will serve to assist the referee in making his final decision

Compared to similar technology in other sports, goal-line technology is a relatively recent addition to association football; its integration having been opposed by the sport's authorities. In July 2012, the International Football Association Board (IFAB) officially approved the use of goal line technology, amending the Laws of the Game to permit (but not require) its use. Due to its expense, goal-line technology is only used at the very highest levels of the game. Goal-line technology is currently used in the top European domestic leagues, and at major international competitions such as the 2014 Men's and 2015 Women's FIFA World Cups.
