FIFA have insisted video replays played no part in Zinedine Zidane being sent off in Sunday night´s World Cup final.

The France captain was red-carded after head-butting Marco Materazzi´s chest and the off-the-ball incident was missed by referee Horacio Elizondo and his linesmen, but was spotted by the fourth official Luis Medina Cantalejo.

FIFA spokesman Andreas Herren told PA Sport: "The fourth referee saw the incident with his own eyes and told the referee and the assistant referee directly though their headsets."
