BLOEMFONTEIN - Fabio Capello and Frank Lampard demanded that Fifa introduce goal-line technology after the England midfielder had a perfectly good goal ruled out in his team's 4-1 World Cup mauling by Germany.
Germany were leading 2-1 just before half-time in their round of 16 clash when a Lampard shot bounced off the underside of the German crossbar and landed a yard (0,91m) over the goal-line but was missed by both Jorge Larrionda, the Uruguayan referee, and his assistant.
The clamour for technology and video replays became even more vocal later on Sunday when Argentina's opening goal in their round of 16 clash with Mexico at Soccer City was allowed to stand despite Carlos Tevez being in an offside position.
Italian referee Roberto Rosetti allowed the 26th-minute goal to stand despite the furore caused by a replay of the incident on the stadium's giant TV screens.
"I am in favour of goal-line technology, especially after tonight," said Chelsea midfielder Lampard.
"The ball crossed the line, it was over, it was so obvious. If we had got back to 2-2 at that moment, it could have been different. It's a huge disappointment.
"We had a meeting pre-World Cup with someone telling us a million different rules - changes that hardly affect the game - and the big one that affects this game today hasn't been brought in so it's a no-brainer."
Capello said he was amazed that football is still behind many other sports that have embraced new technology.
"It's incredible that in a time of technology, the referees aren't capable of deciding if there has been a goal or not," said the Italian.
"The match could have been different after this goal."
The International Football Association Board ruled out the use of goal-line technology and video replays at a meeting in March. - Sapa-AFP
