"The new technology will give confidence to all participants, he said, adding it will clear all doubts and it will also reduce controversies."
Lagos, June 8 - FIFA instructor Adegboye Onigbinde has described the introduction of goal-line at the 2014 FIFA World Cup as a welcome development.

Nigeria-born Onigbinde, former head coach of the Super Eagles, told reporters here Saturday that the introduction of the technology would clear all doubts about shoddy goals, reports Xinhua.

For the first time at a World Cup, officials will be assisted by goal-line technology.

The 2010 World Cup was a catalyst for the decision to adopt the technology after England was wrongly denied a goal in their round 16 tie against Germany, when Frank Lampard's goal was disallowed against Germany.

According to Onigbinde, there have been test runs in some FIFA competitions, including the 2013 Confederation Cup.

The new technology will give confidence to all participants, he said, adding it will clear all doubts and it will also reduce controversies.

The 2014 FIFA World Cup kicks off June 12 and ends July 13.
