Goal-line technology is likely to be in use in English football in the coming season after an historic decision by the game's law-makers.

Two systems, Hawk-Eye and GoalRef, were approved by the International FA Board (IFAB) in Zurich. The Premier League will enter into talks with the two manufacturers, and Hawk-Eye say they could supply the 20 clubs with the technology for January. It is also likely to be used in the coming season's FA Cup semi-finals and final.

FA general secretary Alex Horne said the Hawk-Eye system installed at Wembley for a trial last month is still there - and could be switched on, tested and licensed for FA Cup and perhaps England matches at Wembley. Horne told the Press Association: "It is perfectly possible to introduce it halfway through the season."
