Technology pursued, snoods banned

The International FA Board has decided to continue experiments on goal-line technology - and has issued a ban on players wearing snoods.

FIFA saw ten systems fail to pass its goal-line technology test last month, but the governing body - embarrassed by the failure to award England a valid goal in their 4-1 defeat to Germany at last summer's World Cup - will continue in its efforts to find a useable system for another year.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter said after Saturday's meeting in Newport: "If it works definitely, the board will say yes to the technology [next year], and if the board says yes, then there is no problem.

"[That would mean] there should be no problem to have it in 2014, but I have to restrict my natural optimism and come a little bit back because the tests we have had so far are not conclusive."

Football Association general secretary Alex Horne, keen to see technology introduced, said he was "fairly satisfied" with the outcome of the meeting.

"It's not perfect because we wanted to get the principle of goal-line technology adopted," Horne said. "Given where we were last year when it got thrown out that was my worst fear that it would happen again. My preferred position was we accept the principle and wait for the technology to prove itself. "We are now in the position where they want to look at the technology in different environments and then we will make a decision in March next year. That's why next year's meeting will be so important."

A firm ruling was made on snoods at the meeting: players will be banned from wearing the garments with immediate effect.

Blatter said: "It can also be dangerous. It can be like to hang somebody. I was a football player in winter and summer and have never worn that and we must also pay attention to the law that says what the equipment is."

The IFAB also said UEFA would be allowed to have five match officials at Euro 2012 matches. The two extra officials will be behind the goal-line but on the side of the goal next to the assistant referee.

The IFAB is made up of the four British associations, who each have one vote, and FIFA who have four. Any law change needs at least six votes in favour.
