At virtually every World Cup of the modern era, new devices are used by officials to overcome much of the cheating (gaining advantage) that takes place in a game.

For the Brazil World Cup referees will have a new weapon in their arsenal "Vanishing Spray!"


  • When a free-kick is awarded near the penalty area, the referee sprays a circle round the ball and paces out 10 yards from where it has been placed

  • The line disappears from the pitch within a minute
