FIFA mum on England no-goal
Johannesburg - FIFA is saying nothing about an error by match officials which denied England a goal on Sunday in its 4-1 loss to Germany at the World Cup.
Video: Frank Lampard's disallowed goal
FIFA says in a statement that it "will not make any comments on decisions of the referee on the field of play".
It says football's rules-making panel agreed last March not to pursue experiments with technology that could help referees judge goal-line decisions.
England believed it scored on Sunday when Frank Lampard's shot hit the Germany crossbar, bounced down and back up off the bar again.
Uruguayan referee Jorge Larrionda waved play on but television replays showed that the ball crossed the line.
A goal would have levelled the game at 2-2 in the 38th minute.
