The video review system (VAR) will make its Africa Cup of Nations debut on Wednesday in the last eight clash between Benin and Senegal.

The technology had sparked chaotic scenes at the CAF Champions League final two months ago and officials hope the drama of previous VAR use in the continent can be avoided in the Cup of Nations quarterfinals.

“VAR requires not only equipment, but also expertise,” stressed CAF secretary general Moaz Hajji.

“Everything is ready for its implementation.”
