UEFA are set to propose another change to the offside law following Kylian Mbappe 's controversial strike for France against Spain.

The Paris Saint-Germain forward's recent goal in the Nations League sparked intense debate and a considerable outcry in the Spanish press.

Plenty of fans were left baffled by the decision, with Mbappe appearing well offside when played through by Theo Hernandez.

But a key detail in the current offside rule dictated that allowing the goal to stand was correct.

Spain's Eric Garcia stretching and deliberately touching the ball meant everything that happened after his lunge was classed a new phase of play.

Thus, Mbappe could not be ruled offside as he had no influence on his attempt to cut out the pass.

And ESPN report UEFA now want to reword the law to ensure this cannot happen again.

The exact details are not yet known but the new version is expected to give more leeway to defenders who find themselves in a similar situation.

However, any alteration would only take place from the beginning of the 2022/23 season.

Elsewhere, it's also reported further changes to VAR could see the technology becoming semi-automated.

Using artificial intelligence, the system would be able to immediately rule whether a player had strayed offside.

This would, in theory, remove the frustrating wait for checks to be carried out.

FIFA are keen to implement the improvements in time for the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
