    It is about time, or more precisely, it is about ten years late....

    By the way: "The non-award of his effort ultimately went some way to presaging a 4-1 loss for Lampard’s side....." That is a really funny joke. That is why they got beaten? The germans play in a completely different league than the english.

    To be fair the disallowed goal did come at a crucial time in the match. As a result of it not being allowed, England had to chase the game and due to their need to push forward, gaps opened up at the back which were clinically taken advantage of. Not to say the same wouldn't have happened if the goal had stood, but the complexion of the game would have been very different.

    FIFA set to test goalline technology in Japan

    At the same time, FIFA will also experiment with horse-drawn transportation, hot running water, and something called electricity.....

    volland, the disallowed goal that was a metre over the goal line would have made a huge difference to the game. The Germans were already 2-0 up early in the game and Lampard's goal would have meant the English full of confidence at 2-2 at half time, and the Germans heads would have dropped.

    Anyone who knows anything about football would have understood the difference between 2-2 at half time compared to 2-1, especially when you saw a perfect goal missed by the officials. Personally speaking I believe the Germans would have won the game anyway, but we wouldn't know, thanks to a prehistoric and biased world football authority.
