The way of kicking the ball less into the penalty area of the opponent as defense with the deep back four will gradually reveal weaknesses, greatly affected because they are often put into the penalty area by the opponent and with the system VAR system, even if a player can not finish in the penalty area, they can still create a penalty situation.
The legal method of limiting the ability to develop the ball (such as pressing) of the opponent or put the ball directly into the penalty area as much as possible will take the throne.
In the future, maybe we will see big brands of tight defensive style will collapse, they will have to pay more attention to relieving pressure instead of tension, which they were good at but would not be good anymore because now, apart from keeping the net clean, they also have to stretch their brains more.
In order not to make a mistake in the penalty area this is too difficult to do, so it is smarter to break the opponent’s play, instead of defending concrete and getting penalized.
The spike penalty in this 2018 World Cup is only because the teams have not adapted to the new meta, in the future if the VAR system is widely applied, all will get used to it and adjust. the way to adapt, the penalties will be reduced again this is an inevitable thing to happen.
No more ambiguity, injustice in football thanks to VAR
Football fans always want the referee to be fair in every football situation. However, with the fast pace and the complexity of the ball situations happening on the pitch, catching every movement with the naked eye will not be 100% standard. A tech support is needed to support the referee in a competitive situation and VAR is the referee’s companion in every match.
VAR meets the needs of the fans and players alike in a fair and realistic manner. Var appears in football simply to overcome the negative situations that arise wrong with the law and it was not born to change the tradition of football rules. And indeed VAR technology has done it well, which is why all sensitive cases such as penalties, red cards … need the support and intervention of VAR.
