I sure hope Platini is not the next head of FIFA...almost a Blatter clone if you have followed his post playing career....
Read it all here:The news agency said that two systems – Hawk-Eye and GoalRef – have passed exhaustive scientific tests to the satisfaction of the IFAB. The Hawk-Eye system is based on cameras and GoalRef uses magnetic fields. The IFAB will reportedly stress that the systems will be approved as an aid to referees, rather than the ultimate decision-maker.
The approval will come as a major setback to UEFA president Michel Platini, who has been tipped to succeed FIFA president Sepp Blatter when the incumbent’s term finishes. Blatter reiterated his support for goal-line technology in the wake of the latest controversial incident that saw Ukraine denied a goal against England at Euro 2012. However, Platini expressed his opposition to the technology earlier this week by saying such a move would be a “historical mistake”.
