Lamps says technology can show way

Frank Lampard has called for Fifa to introduce goalline technology to matches after missing out on a potentially vital equalising goal against Germany on Sunday despite the ball clearly crossing the line. Frank Lampard has called for Fifa to introduce goalline technology to matches after missing out on a potentially vital equalising goal against Germany on Sunday despite the ball clearly crossing the line. Lampard's shot from just outside the area was a good yard over the line before bouncing back out and would have drawn the match level at 2-2.  The assistant referee did not think it had crossed the line, and England went on to concede two goals on the counter-attack and lose 4-1. "I haven't seen the goal again but I didn't need to. I knew straight away that my shot was over the line, clearly a yard or so," he said. "It baffles me that it wasn't given and it was a big deciding factor. I won't stand here and say it is the reason why we got knocked out but if it had gone to 2-2, and we had still come out and played the way we did in the second half, it would have been a different game. "I think it is time to bring in goal-line technology. We had a meeting before the World Cup when we were told about a million different rule changes that hardly affect the game."
