To those who worried that 10 was too many officials to appoint to a single game. FIFA have appointed one more on top of the referee, two assistants, a fourth, a reserve assistant, a video assistant, an assistant video assistant, an offside video assistant, a support video assistant and a stand by assistant video assistant.

The remaining eight games will now have a stand by video assistant referee who is at the stadium and will take over VAR duties if there is a communications problem between the ground and the referees' hub, so that the fourth official does not have to do this and the reserve assistant doesn't have to become the fourth official.
