Hawk-eye at Wembley clash

2012-05-24 17:29

Zurich - FIFA says the Hawk-Eye goal-line technology system will be tested at Wembley Stadium when England play Belgium in a June 2 friendly.

It's the final scheduled test of Hawk-Eye in a recognised match before FIFA's rules-making panel meets July 2 in Kiev.

The panel, known as IFAB, is considering whether to approve the English camera-based system or the Danish project GoalRef for use.

GoalRef, which uses magnetic sensors to track the ball's path, is being tested in Danish league matches.

FIFA says test results during the game will not be available to match officials and will not influence the result.

Hawk-Eye has been tested at a semi-professional match played at Southampton's stadium last week.
