MANCHESTER, England (AP) FIFA President Sepp Blatter wants to test the use of video replays in matches by next year.

Speaking at the SoccerEx conference in a pre-recorded video, Blatter says he wants TV replays used in a domestic league and at the Under-20 World Cup in New Zealand in 2015.

Blatter says ''we could test such challenge calls.''

Coaches would have the right once or twice in each half to challenge a refereeing decision.

Blatter has portrayed himself as a champion of technology since reversing his opposition to goal-line aids, which were used at the World Cup in Brazil for the first time.
