Goal-line systems ready to be tested

The results of tests on 10 different goal-line technology systems will be considered by world football's rule-making body at their annual meeting next month in Cardiff.

The use of goal-line systems was rejected a year ago but the debate was reignited by England's disallowed goal in last summer's World Cup defeat by Germany. Fifa said the proposed systems will be tested next week by Zurich researchers.
