Video Assistant Referees (VAR) technology will be used in the knockout stages of this season's Champions League and Europa League competitions.

European football's governing body confirmed the move following the meeting of its executive committee in Dublin.

VAR will also be used at next summer's Nations League Finals - which will feature England as well as Portugal, Holland and Switzerland.
