FIFA dismisses Brazil's video assistant review complaint from Switzerland draw

Neymar returned to Brazil's training after sustaining an injury during Tuesday's training session.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley says Neymar's "circus" in Brazil's draw against Switzerland and subsequent injury news are a distraction to the team.

SOCHI, Russia -- The Brazilian soccer federation says FIFA has dismissed its complaint over the use of video review in the team's World Cup opener against Switzerland.

The federation said on Wednesday that FIFA didn't specifically address the plays contested by Brazil: non-calls on a push inside the area before Switzerland's equaliser and a penalty shout on Gabriel Jesus.

It said FIFA reiterated VAR is used only to eliminate clear and obvious mistakes by the officiating crew.

The federation said its request for the audio used by match officials was denied by FIFA, which claimed the decision not to release such recordings was made before the tournament started.

The federation maintained that it still believed the use of VAR would have avoided the "clear" refereeing mistakes that went against Brazil during the match.

It said that keeping an open dialogue with FIFA will prevent future mistakes in incidents involving VAR and contribute to improve the system.
