France is the first team to benefit from goal-line tech at the World Cup - Reports

Last year, FIFA developed a goal-line technology which was planned to be put to use during the ongoing World Cup, according to report from Engadget. Goal-line tech is a method used to determine when the ball has completely crossed the goal line with the assistance of electronic devices and at the same time assisting the referee in awarding a goal or not.

Engadget reveals that this technology is being deployed during the France versus Honduras Game. "...when the shot from France's Karim Benzema bounced off the far post and deflected off the keeper into goal, in the midst of a World Cup match, there was more than a little confusion. The referee asked for clarification through the newly instituted
goal-line technology, which initially (and confusingly) ruled 'No goal'. However, that was for the initial rebound, not when it bounced off the Honduras keeper and apparently crossed the line."

For anyone that considers themselves a soccer fan, whats your view on it?

  1. Goal line tech or not, it was a clear goal...the ball hit the post,then passed the line before the keeper drew it out...d coaches were discussing as if they were in a conference meeting.
