Chelsea's 'Ghost Goal' instigates FIFA to test goal-line technology

London, Mon, 16 Apr 2012 ANI

London, Apr 16 (ANI): FIFA have announced that final tests on goal-line technology will begin later this month, following Chelsea's 'ghost goal' against Tottenham in the semi-final of Football Association Cup on Sunday, when replays evidently showed that Juan Mata's strike had clearly not crossed the line, but still a goal was awarded.

The International Football Association Board, the game's rule-making body, last month approved two systems to go into a second round of testing in match scenarios and a definitive decision is awaited in July.

FIFA confirmed on Sunday that tests with Sony's Hawk-Eye, which uses camera-based-ball tracking and German-Danish Company, GoalRef, which adopts a magnetic field with a special ball, will be done which would commence before the end of April and continue throughout May, the Daily Mail reports.

Both systems send a signal within a second, when the ball crosses the line to the referee, who retains the power to make the final call.

In a statement released by FIFA, they said "The latest planning meeting for test phase two was held on Friday, and the second phase of tests will commence before end of April, and will continue throughout May." (ANI)
