Sepp Blatter, Fifa president, has labelled goal-line technology a "necessity" after Ukraine were denied an equaliser against England in their final Euro 2012 group game.
Marko Devic's shot was cleared from underneath Joe Hart's crossbar by England defender John Terry, yet the ball had clearly gone over the line. And now Blatter has called for myopic officials to be aided by fault-proof devices.
"Goal-line technology is no longer an alternative but a necessity," the Swiss said on his Twitter account.
Blatter's ally and Uefa president Michel Platini has been a vocal opponent of introducing such measures, which has resulted in two extra officials beside the goals to monitor penalty area activity.
Yet the inclusion of the additional adjudicators has backfired in the past two years, with barely a decision being made by the officials, who inform referees via their headset.
Fifa will decide on 5 July whether to approve the five-official system and both goal-line technology systems currently being tested in England and Denmark.
England's friendly with Belgium at Wembley last month trialled the The Hawk-Eye system, which is used in tennis.
