Fifa ponders goal-line technology
Roy Carroll and the goal that never was
New technology could have given Pedro Mendes' goal count
The laws of football could be changed to incorporate advances in goal-line technology when Fifa and Football Association officials meet in March.

The AGM of the International Football Association Board will discuss the matter at its Lucerne AGM on 4 March.

The recent Under-17 World Championship in Peru tested a ball with a microchip inserted, but the Ifab meeting will focus on camera-based technology.

The Ifab includes Fifa and the English, Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish FAs.

A statement from Fifa read: "Information from the Italian FA will be presented to the members of the Ifab on goal-line technology that uses high-performance digital cameras rather than a chip-implanted ball or any fixed installation on the field or in the goal posts."
