Wembley friendly to feature goal-line test

When England takes on Belgium in a Euro 2012 warmup next week, one of the two goal-line systems being researched by FIFA will be tested. The system, developed by British firm Hawk-Eye, will be used and evaluated during match at Wembley on June 2, after a previous trial at an amateur league cup final on England's south coast earlier this month.

FIFA is currently testing two goal-line technology systems -- the other is GoalRef, developed in Germany and recently used in two Danish league matches -- with a view to possibly adapting one for sanctioned use as early as July.

Match officials in the Wembley friendly wll not use the technology in the event of a goal-line incident. Instead, it will be monitored by observers, including those from FIFA and its rules body the International Football Association Board (IFAB).

The test brings goal-line technology back to the site of one of the sport's most hotly disputed goals. Geoff Hurst's shot in the first half of overtime at Wembley hit the underside of the bar;
Swiss referee Gottfried Dienst consulted Soviet linesman Tofik Bakhramov to determine whether the ball had crossed the line. Bakhramov ruled it had, England went 3-2 up and won the match 4-2.
