World Cup 2014: Goalline technology TV process reviewed

Goal-line technology ruled that France striker Karim Benzema's effort against Honduras had crossed the line

Fifa is to review how it broadcasts goalline technology decisions after the process caused confusion during a World Cup game between France and Honduras.

On Sunday in France's 3-0 win, goalline technology was used for the first time at a Fifa World Cup to aid a decision.

Replays showed a 'no goal' graphic before judging the ball later crossed the line after hitting the goalkeeper.

Honduras coach Luis Suarez and his French counterpart Didier Deschamps were left confused by the process.

"The first replay that was used showed the ball hitting the inside of the post and not fully crossing the line, before the next replay aired seconds later with the animation confirming the ball had fully crossed the line after it had hit the goalkeeper," said a statement from football's governing body.

"In order to ensure maximum clarity in the future for those unfamiliar with GLT, Fifa will review the coverage of this match with the broadcast production team and GoalControl GmbH, to see if any improvements can be made to enhance the viewing experience for fans."
