Video evidence used for first time to award penalty
Video evidence was used to award a penalty for the first time at the Club World Cup when the referee gave Kashima Antlers a spot kick against Atletico Nacional in their semi-final Wednesday.
An off-field official called attention to an infringement by Orlando Berrio and Hungarian referee Viktor Kassai walked to the side of the pitch to review the incident on a computer screen.
Viktor Kassai immediately awarded a 33rd minute penalty that Shoma Doi converted to give Japanese side Kashima a 1-0 lead.

Berrio could clearly be seen tripping opponent Daigo Nishi as the players moved into the box to challenge for a free kick.
Late on the Antlers secured the win with two more goals through Yasushi Endo and Yuma Suzuki so they will play either Real Madrid or Mexico's Club America, who meet on Thursday, in Sunday's final.
