Fifa will change the guidelines on showing goal-line technology (GLT) replays at the World Cup to avoid the confusion which followed an incident in the match between France and Honduras.
The GLT replays on TV and in the stadium in Porto Alegre provided by the GoalControl system initially flashed up 'NO GOAL' after France striker Karim Benzema's shot struck the post and then bounced against Honduras keeper Noel Valladares and just over the line.
The replay was triggered by Benzema's shot not having crossed the line, and was then followed by another GLT replay saying 'GOAL' to show that an own goal had been scored immediately afterwards.
BBC commentator Jonathan Pearce was among those confused, saying to viewers: "Well, which replay are we supposed to believe? If in doubt the referee cannot give it."
The goal was awarded and both coaches accepted the system had worked correctly but FIFA will now ensure that near misses are not flashed up first if a goal is scored immediately afterwards.

1/22 Hugo Lloris 7/10
What little he had to do, he did with ease and class and never looked in the slightest bit of trouble.
2/22 Debuchy 7
Honduras going down to ten man meant he could fly forward and did so well. Helped set up Benzema’s second.
3/22 Evra 7
Did well up and down the wing and was solid at the back.
4/22 Cabaye 8
Looked classy and never rushed and produced a great pass in the lead up to France’s second.
5/22 Varane 6
Was fine at the back and had relatively little to do. Nearly gave away a penalty late on for tackle on Costly
6/22 Sakho 6
Was a touch suspect early on but settled down and managed with everything Honduras could muster.
7/22 Pogba 6
Guilty of getting carried away in clash with Palacios and could have been sent off for Beckham-like kick out. Good touch to win penalty.
8/22 Matuidi 6
Was powerful in the middle of the pitch but really should have scored from Evra’s crossed.
9/22 Banzema 9
Scored two, nearly had three and could have got a hat full more. Looked superb and well be key to France’s WC chances.
10/22 Valbuena 9
Skilful, tricky and a threat all night. Set-pieces were a danger throughout and went close to scoring on more than one occasion, a real highlight for France.
11/22 Griezmann 7
Played well but not has much of a threat as his attacking team-mates.
12/22 Honduras: Valladares 6/10
Despite shipping three goals, including an own goal, the goalkeeper actually played quite well. Several good saves and the save of the tournament so far from Matuidi’s effort.
13/22 Beckeles 4
Helpless to stop France and looked out of place at this level.
14/22 Izaguirre 4
Equally unable to deal with France and should have been red carded for lash out at Valbuena.
15/22 Palacios 3
Awful, awful night for the Stoke man who deservedly received an early bath.
16/22 Bernardez 6
Did better than his teammates in keeping France at bay before picking up a nasty looking knee injury.
17/22 Figueroa 4
Another Honduran who could have been shown a red card after scything down Valbuena, poor.
18/22 Najar 6
Did OK for half an hour but had no chance in stopping France after his team went down to ten.
19/22 Garrido 5
Also guilty of some awful tackling and escaped the referee’s red after horror tackle on Evra, bad night.
20/22 Costly 6
Could have won a penalty late on but referee said no, very little to go on other than that.
21/22 Bengston 4
Very little chance to get into the game in an attacking sense and was replaced at half-time.
22/22 Espinoza 5
Was a threat in the first ten minutes but nothing after that.
FIFA spokeswoman Delia Fischer told a news conference: "We are working to make it even more clear and will modify the guidelines so that you just see the goal.
"There was no mistake but we will modify the guidelines to make it even more clear for the viewers in the stadium and on TV.
"Yesterday's situation was quite unique as the ball hit the inside of the post, rebounded away from goal before hitting the goalkeeper and rolling across the goal-line."
France won the match against Honduras 3-0.
