The FIFA Council meeting in Bogota, Colombia, on Friday selected Poland to host the U-20 football World Cup in 2019.

FIFA stated on its website on Saturday that, "the FIFA Council voted in favour of amending Regulations of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia so that the tournament adopts the following changes to the Laws of the Game approved by The International Football Association Board (IFAB) during its 132nd Annual General Meeting".

The system has been used in Germany's Bundesliga and Italy's Serie A this season as well as some English FA and League Cup matches.

In spite of criticisms that have trailed the use of Video assistant referees (VAR), FIFA President, Gianni Infantino insists the tool helps referees make better decisions in the field of play.

The system allows the referee or the video assistant to review decisions where a "clear and obvious" error is spotted.

According to IFAB, this move 'represents a new era for football with video assistance for referees helping to increase integrity and fairness in the game'.

Used for the first time in global competition at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation a year ago, Infantino stressed at the time the need for "continuing tests" but insisted that its use would make football a fairer game.

He confirmed that there were two candidates - Morocco against a joint bid from the United States, Canada and Mexico.

Morocco will earmark $15.8 billion on stadiums and infrastructure if it wins the bid to organize the 2026 World Cup, the bid committee said.

Morocco says it will need to spend nearly $16 billion to prepare to host the 2026 World Cup, with every proposed stadium and training ground built from scratch or renovated.

Additionally, VARs tend to operate out of central hubs, such as the Moscow hub that will be used for the 2018 World Cup. "Political issues we leave to the politicians".
