Goal-line technology to be tested during England friendly

  • Hawk-Eye goal-line technology will be tested during England's home friendly against Belgium at Wembley next month.

    Independent testers and representatives from world governing body FIFA will monitor the system, though it will not be available for use by officials during the June 2 match.

    The Hawk-Eye system has already undergone trials during an English minor league cup final between Eastleigh and AFC Totton in April.

    An alternative system, GoalRef, was also tested at two Danish league matches this month.

    The English FA has been pushing for the introduction of the technology with the debate repeatedly arising after major controversial decisions.
