The Goal Line Technology Debate

It’s pretty clear it’s time for goal-line technology in the world’s greatest sport.

Lampard's Goal Versus Tottenham Hotspur

The goal that shouldn't have been a goal comes at the 35th second mark in the video below.

 

And again it was Frank Lampard who was involved in a play where the issue came up. However, this time one of his shots was called a goal when it shouldn’t have been. Unlike in the World Cup against German, where his shot bounced inside the goal, this time he was playing for Chelsea instead of England and his shot didn’t go in the goal but was incorrectly ruled a goal by the linesman.

Lampard's Disallowed Goal Against Germany

 

As many are calling for and wondering why it's not in place, all it takes is fourth official to look at a screen off the field and make the correct call. There is no reason or excuse as to why FIFA hasn’t implemented the technology.

Sure, they want to keep the game pure, they don't want to slow the game down. If you start having referees looking at video footage to make decisions, with this get opened up to other aspects of the game? A questionable red card, a hand ball in the box, an offside call?

There is understandable concern about this, you don't want the game over officiated and constantly stopped so someone can look at the video footage. But, you also don't want goals scored that didn't go in and goals that did go in to now count.
