German referee Markus Merk has called for video replays to be introduced in football to prevent errors like the one he made in Werder Bremen´s 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.

Merk, a two-time FIFA referee of the year, realised his mistake seconds later when the goal was replayed on large screens at the Weser Stadium.

He said: "It is bad when everybody in the stadium gets to see that we have made an incorrect decision. I saw it on the big screen straight after."
