FIFA's Sepp Blatter pushes for goal-line technology

  • FIFA president Sepp Blatter has renewed calls for the introduction of goal-line technology following a controversial incident in England's 1-0 Euro 2012 win over Ukraine helped eliminate the co-hosts.

    Marko Devic's shot crossed the line in the game in Donetsk but was not given.

    Goal-line technology could be approved by the International Football Association Board (IFAB) on July 5.

    UEFA president Michel Platini has stated he prefers the system of five match officials but expects the IFAB to give one of two goal-line systems currently being tested the go-ahead.

    This would enable individual associations to decide whether to use the technology in their competitions.
