FIFA President Seep Blatter say's the issue of goal-line technology is up for discussion when the International Football Association Board meet later this year in October.

Sepp Blatter, FIFA President, said, "And I have said at this meeting, we will bring the point of goalline technology to be brought to the official meeting of the business group that will take place in October. And now it is on the agenda in October, in Cardiff goalline technology."

The use of video technology was raised again at the World Cup in June, when Frank Lampard was denied a goal in England's second round defeat to Germany. The referee ruled no-score, despite television replays showing the ball clearly crossed the goal line.
