British Prime Minister David Cameron took a short break from G20 politics to express his disappointment at England's 4-1 defeat by Germany in the World Cup's second round on Sunday. Touching upon England's controversial "failed goal," Cameron says the use of technology might benefit the sport.

David Cameron, British prime minister said, "The one thing I do think, and this is controversial, but nevertheless I'll step over the line -- I do think using technology in sport is a bonus, I'm a keen follower of cricket and tennis, and I think the third umpire has been a great thing, and the machines that bleep at Wimbledon are quite handy too, and maybe that's something in football we could have a look at."
