Goalline technology debate in October

IFAB, the body responsible for determining the rules of the sport, had agreed in their July meeting to put the issue on their agenda for their official gathering in Wales later in the year.

"At this meeting [in October], we will bring the point of goalline technology," Blatter told reporters. "It is now on the this agenda.

"My personal opinion on goal technology has never changed, I have said if we have an accurate and simple system then we will implement but so far we have not had a simple, nor an accurate system."

The debate on the of the use of technology was raised again when Frank Lampard was denied a goal in England’s second-round World Cup defeat to Germany in June despite television replays showing the ball clearly crossing the goalline.

Blatter is in Singapore to open the men’s and women’s football tournaments for the inaugural Youth Olympic Games.
