image for FIFA Boss Blatter Demands Goal Line Technology After England Win
The lad done good. It was offside after all.

Head of world football, Sepp Blatter, has finally accepted that the time is right to introduce goal-line technology (GLT) into the game following England's progress into the Euro 2012 quarter-finals last night.

The FIFA president tweeted that he felt GLT should be introduced after Ukraine were denied a goal, with England defender John Terry apparently hooking clear a ball that had just crossed the line. Replays showed that the move resulting in the goal included an offside, also not noticed by officials.

England's 1-0 victory in Donetsk was enough to see them top Group D and sets up a quarter-final against Italy.

Blatter has been slow to embrace the idea of GLT and there was outrage when he said the game didn't need it after TV cameras clearly showed Frank Lampard had a legitimate goal disallowed in the World Cup in South Africa two years ago.

A spokesman for FIFA said: "That was very different - that cock-up hurt England. This latest one has helped them to a win so we need to do something as soon as possible.

"Can't have England benefitting from crap decisions, can we?"
