Goal-line technology set for Brazil 2014

FIFA president Sepp Blatter has revealed that goal-line technology will be introduced for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

The 75-year-old ignored repeated calls for technology to be brought in following the controversy at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, when England midfielder Frank Lampard saw an effort ruled out against Germany despite the ball having clearly crossed the line.

One of several incidents in recent years, the goal woud have seen Fabio Capello’s side draw level at 2-2 in the Round of 16 match, which they eventually lost 4-1.

But Blatter, who was re-elected in June despite corruption claims and calls for a more modern approach in the game, has warmed to the idea of goal-line technology.

In an interview with El Mundo Deportivo, he has now suggested it will become a reality at Brazil 2014.

“Brazil 2014 will have technology to avoid ‘phantom goals’,” Blatter told the Catalan newspaper.

“We have two good systems which correspond to the needs we have been considering: reliability, immediacy and (methods that are) uncomplicated to use.”
