Fifa to introduce goal line technology at 2014 World Cup

Fifa to introduce goal line technology in 2014 World Cup

Frank Lampard's disallowed goal against Germany

The 2014 World Cup in Brazil will see the introduction of goal line technology, Fifa President Sepp Blatter says.

The technology has become increasingly necessary following controversial decisions especially in the last World Cup in South Africa.

Many teams have been denied victories in important matches due to either the incompetence of match officials or genuine mistakes but Fifa until now have rejected the introduction of technology claiming it diminishes the human nature of the game which it so wants to protect.

However with even more investments being pumped into the game to somewhat guarantee success Fifa with its unwavering President have decided to soften their stands on the issue.

“Brazil 2014 will have technology to avoid ‘phantom goals,’ Blatter said.

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

The news will definitely induce a positive reaction especially from teams who have suffered from the lack of technology especially England who in the last World Cup were denied an important equalizer against Germany when the referee failed to award a goal after replays eventually showed Frank Lampard’s effort had clearly crossed the line.

    Why is the focus always on frank lampards diaslowed goal, were they (the english) the 1st to be denied a goal of this kind? They failled woefully at the world cup and they always want to blame it on just a goal. They were not this noisy bout tis until afta their elimination in d wc. As much i support this technology i don’t like the way england went bout the campaign as if without it soccer doesn’t exist. Mtcheeew!

    • big bro says:

      let it take England to bring about the change. it will benefit us all. Suarez’s kind of injustice will be a thing of the past. it however must be possible for both teams to see clearly that a goal has been scored to eliminate a corrupt referee ignoring a clear goal.

  3. aberico says:

    Even Ghana’s goal against Uruguay was a clear goal, but the referee gave a penalty for that. But if this goal technology is only confine to FIFA tournaments, then I think it will not benefit the football community. What about the various leagues and tournament across the world. It is these tournaments that prepare players for the world cup, and therefore necessity is laid on FIFA to extend the technology to all field of the game across the world.

    @ aberico… without an experiment, you can’t confirm the usefulness. This is just the start and like blatter rightly said and I quote; “We have two good systems which correspond to the needs we have been considering: reliability, immediacy and [methods that are] uncomplicated to use.” One has test the technology somewhere, see its reliability and all that is needed b4 we move 2 the next level.
