France has the honor of being the firstÂ
soccerfootball team to be aided byÂ FIFAâ€™s new goal-line technology, after it was used to award a goal in yesterdayâ€™s World Cup 2014Â match against Honduras.
While the initial shotÂ from French forward Karim Benzema struck the post and didnâ€™t cross the line, the whole of the ball did go overÂ after it ricocheted off unfortunate Honduras â€˜keeperÂ Noel Valladares, according to FIFAâ€™s tech setup.
Not included in this clip is Honduras coachÂ Luis Fernando SuÃ¡rez berating the officials for allowing the goal.Â Thereâ€™s not much mileage in that complaint any longer, old son.
Inaccurate decisions like the below are the reason FIFA has stepped things up â€” but do you agree that it got this World Cup goalÂ right?
