World football governing body, FIFA, has approved Rwandan capital - Kigali - as the host city for the eighth FIFA Council Meeting to be held on October 25-26.

Morocco would 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, the bid said Saturday.

This was despite the controversy over the time taken to make decisions and the lack of information for spectators in major European leagues like Italy's Serie A and the German Bundesliga, where it has been trialled.

This was agreed in Colombia on Friday by FIFA's ruling council, chaired by President Gianni Infantino.

This nifty tool will help referees make decisions on hard calls involving penalties and goals, mistaken identity, red cards, and any offenses leading up to specific moments.

"We are not going to war", said Infantino.

Kendall Jenner Reveals She Doesn't Have 'Baby Fever' After Kylie Had Stormi
Kendall - who appears on the cover this month - has always been plagued by rumours that she is gay or bisexual. Sitting down with Ellen DeGeneres , the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star explained: "I was drunk".

There has been criticism of video review, however, over the amount of time taken for referrals during matches, as well as complaints over confusion caused for coaches and fans.

Amid much fanfare, India had submitted its bid for hosting the mega event after successfully organising the U-17 World Cup last October.

He added: "I was sceptical at first, but without trying you can not know what it's worth". That's why we carried out trials in those 1,000 matches. These are facts and figures.

The VAR also has an assistant watching the game with them. "We need to leave one percent, we can not provide 100".

Infantino added: "We have two bids in play, one is a joint bid involving Canada, USA and Mexico, the second bid is Morocco".

"If Europe's three leading football nations whom bookmakers expect to be at least semi-finalists in the World Cup - Germany, France and Spain - were to decide that an unprovoked nerve agent attack by Russian Federation on a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally merited joining England in a boycott, it would destroy the credibility and attraction of the tournament and hurt Putin's popularity more than any economic or diplomatic sanction", Purslow wrote.
