As I’m sure our British readers will know, England suffered a terrible defeat at the hands of Germany’s squad at the world cup the other day.
The most controversial part of this match being the disallowed ‘goal’ from our very own Frank Lampard, which wrecked an already staggered level of team morale and spurred on an intense disliking of the referee (from the English fans of course).
The fact of the matter being, technology was out-ruled as a form of validation for a goal, referee’s word is final, no matter how inaccurate! This has raised talks amongst FIFA execs about the use of ‘Goal-Line Technology’ to help verify referee’s decisions and ensure a fair game.
Plenty of other sports use similar technology to validate badly judged calls and accurately review split second movements for fairness, but FIFA just don’t agree that it is in the best interest for the sport
Below we have photographs taken of the ‘no-goal’ using the goal-line tech. Judge for yourself!
