  • 2. •In the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, goal-line technology made its first appearance in a major competition, many years after sports such as tennis, American football, and rugby implemented video review. The 2014 World Cup makes use of a system known as the GoalControl-4D system, which includes seven high-speed cameras per goal arranged around the roof and catwalks of the stadium. The cameras remain fixed on any number of objects around the pitch, including players, the referee, and the ball. If the cameras determine that a ball crosses the goal line, the referee receives a vibration on his wristwatch indicating that a goal has been scored.
  • 3. •Goal line technology has already played a part in the 2014 FIFA World Cup. In a group stage game between France and Honduras, goal-line technology helped the referee determine that France had indeed scored a goal. Contrary to popular expectations, the flow of the game went mostly uninterrupted by the review.
