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.
It said 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.
