Goal-line technology not yet on menu

LONDON - Fifa will not be discussing goal-line technology when football's rulers meet in Wales this week, contrary to indications by Fifa president Sepp Blatter.

Blatter had announced that the controversial issue would be on the agenda when he gave England and Mexico fulsome apologies for refereeing errors in their World Cup round of 16 defeats to Germany and Argentina respectively.

Blatter said goal-line technology had to be discussed once again at the "first opportunity" and indicated that this would take place in Cardiff.

"It is obvious that after the experience so far in this World Cup, it would be a nonsense to not reopen the file of technology at the business meeting of the International FA Board in July," he said in Johannesburg last month.

But a Fifa spokesperson said yesterday: "The meeting this week is purely to ratify any requests that have come forward over the implementation of the assistant referees experiment, which was used last year in the Europa League. The first formal meeting where that discussion on goal-line technology could take place is in October."

Goal-line technology reappeared on Fifa's agenda after England's Frank Lampard had a legitimate goal disallowed, while Mexico were aggrieved when Argentinian striker Carlos Tevez was clearly offside when he scored the first goal.

That incident was made worse when a replay was shown on the big screen at the stadium.
