The recent decision by the International FA Board to allow goal line technology to be used is a momentous decision for world football – or at least .01% of world football.

Goal line technology, at a cost of up to $400,000 per installation, is only for the rich leagues and competitions.

Worldwide football on the public parks will gain no benefit.

The controversy of whether a ball did or did not cross the goal line will be determined by technology in only a few cases.

Everyone else can argue about it afterwards in the café or in the pub.

That is football.

Long may these football controversies continue!
