FIFA President Sepp Blatter said "it would be a nonsense not to reopen the file on goal line technology" after Frank Lampard's shot crossed the German goal line at
the 2010 World Cup but was not awarded. However, soccer's rulemakers -- the International Football Association Board (IFAB) - will not discuss goal line technology when it meets Wednesday in
The technical sub-committee of the IFAB has just one item on the agenda: the continuing experiment with additional assistant referees behind the goals as trialled in the Europa League last season.
The earliest date for any debate about goal line technology would be at the next IFAB meeting in October. Any rule-changing decision on goal-line technology would not be taken until IFAB's next annual meeting in March 2011.
The IFAB, which conisists of one representative from each of the four British associations and four from FIFA, rejected the implementation of goal-line technology last March.
