Column: FIFA needs to spend on goal-line technology that could have saved USA

The USA is out of the World Cup thanks in part to a goal that should not have been awarded.

    Ok! But a sorry excuse for the US to be going to Russia.  They should have taken care of business on their side, instead of blaming a goal that should not have counted in the the panama match.

    Column title: "FIFA needs to spend on goal-line technology that could have saved USA.".   How shameless, ungenuine and arrogant for anyone to do so.  Although I do not defend FIFA is all about the dollars/Euros, it is pathetic to promote FIFA needed to save the USA as much as it is convenient.  It is that American arrogance to fault the ghost goal and not take accountability for USA being able to even get a tie or a win.  This is coming from a US football Federation fan that can't believe what happened, but at the same time I can accept why it happened and it is not a doom scenario and in the end it will make the National Football Team learn a lesson and make it gain that hunger to fight than to simply show up and think the USFF shield will scare the opponent to easily give up and lose.
