The Confederations Cup hasn’t yet caught the imagination, but the debate over the use of VAR in the competition has caught light. Technology in football is finally coming, but is the sport ready for it?

Graham Ruthven is joined by Stefan Bienkowski and Grant Russell to talk it over on this week’s show.
