Are we going to see quite a lot of offside goals at this World Cup?

Given that FIFA have told the referees at the World Cup that they should give the benefit of the doubt to the attacking players in close offside situations. Is the message that it is not so wise to play the offside trap?

    No, because VAR will be used so all offisde goals scored will be retracted.

    VAR will stop offside goals from being wrongly awarded.

    Theoretically there should be none because for the first time ever there will be a fourth match official which has access to video replay and can advise the referee is the goal was offside or not.

    They can also advise about penalties or if a ball crossed the line etc.

    There has been TMO (Third Match Official) in Rugby for years and its about time soccer caught up.

    yeah Gallinsky definitely should have been given the benefit of the doubt when he was clearly offside against Saudi Arabia...
