England referee chief Riley: VAR has 'gone very well' so far

Welbeck's challenge in the penalty area on Cesc Fabregas was referred to Video Assistant Referee Neil Swarbrick by Martin Atkinson but after a lengthy delay the decision was no penalty.

He told BBC Radio 5 live: "We're coming up with ideas to make that more effective".

"We've had the opportunity to use it, it has been used very effectively and we've come out with the right outcomes".

"That (1minute 25seconds) is a little bit longer than we have done in training", said Riley.

I didn't know the VAR was actually looking at that incident.


The same issue was identified during last summer's Confederations Cup, with officials subsequently instructed to mime a television signal whenever checks were being made, not just when VAR had been used to change a decision.

'We are at the start of the process.

Brighton striker Glenn Murray benefited from the first use of video replay in competitive English soccer when he nudged the ball over the line with his knee to secure a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace in the FA Cup on Monday. "The more we do of that the faster we will be at it and the less impact we will have on the game".

"Currently if you look at the referee you'll see him put his finger in his ear - and there were two good examples of that with referee Martin Atkinson [during the Chelsea v Arsenal match]".
