The Football Association have stressed their desire to see goal-line technology introduced as soon as possible following Chelsea's 'ghost goal' against Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-final.
FIFA are to start final tests on two goal-line technology systems later this month and a meeting on the International FA Board (IFAB) on July 2 will decide whether to give the green light to either or both systems. The FA, who have one of the eight votes on IFAB, have supported goal-line technology for years and are hopeful it will be brought in at July's meeting.
An FA statement said: "The FA has led the calls at IFAB for the introduction of goal-line technology for over a decade, and we reiterate our desire to see it introduced as soon as possible. No other single body has called as strongly for its introduction as the FA."
