FIFA president Joseph Blatter hinted on the possible video introduction of arbitration in football and the inclusion of another two assistants for referees, topics to be discussed at a meeting in July.
Blatter said Monday he does not preclude the introduction of technological measures to help referees after the serious mistakes that occurred in World Cup while he apologized Mexico and England by the referee errors that hurt them.
