Goal-line technology set for green light
Goal-line technology is certain to get the go-ahead from football's law-makers next week, according to sources on the International FA Board (IFAB)
The two systems, Hawk-Eye and GoalRef, are set to be judged to have passed exhaustive scientific tests to the satisfaction of the IFAB.
The urgency to address the situation, given fresh impetus by Ukraine’s disallowed goal against England last week, will also sweep aside any lingering doubts over the two systems.
Although the tests still raised questions over whether the systems would be completely 100% accurate in every circumstance, the results are understood to be positive enough even for the doubters on the IFAB to give the green light.
