Big help on referees starting with third elimination round

Last week two completely different major news has occurred concerning the same competition: qualifying games for the World Cup that next year will be staged in Qatar.
Out of the six, the Asian confederation on 17 June has announced that this continent is going to be the first to use video assistant referee system on its matches. Hence, the little / big monitors from above will be installed on every stadia and are going to detect any foul that will happen together with incidents among players beginning from the third elimination stage (who is ready to kick off in September) and onwards.
Two days later the world football organization has managed (in these conditions) to issue a punishment for Mexico ordering them to play their next two home duels behind close doors. Staging it with or without spectators, really does not have a point knowing that nearly all teams in these qualifiers are playing on empty arenas (due to the well known health situation). On top of that, the association had to deliver 60.000 Swiss francs (54.838 euros) because Mexican fans yelled homophobic chants at the Olympic elimination games back in March. Because of this behavior no one will be present in the third round of North, Central America and Caribbean qualifiers for duels against: Jamaica on 02 September, and 07 October with Canada.
