Carling Cup technology ruled out
By Phil Harlow

Fifa president Sepp Blatter
Blatter's original comments appear to have been misunderstood
Goal-line technology will not be used in the Carling Cup final, a Football League spokesman has told BBC Sport.

Comments attributed to Fifa chief Sepp Blatter suggested technology to clear up goal-line incidents would be used.

Confusion may have arisen because Blatter is attending a meeting in Cardiff to discuss rule changes the day before the Millennium Stadium final.

"Something may have been lost in translation," said Football League spokesman Ian Christon.

Fifa has confirmed that the International Football Association Board (IFAB), the body that considers rule changes, will consider the issue of goal-line technology at its meeting on 26 February.
