Spray it across all soccer

Cape Town - Vanishing spray inventor, Heine Allegmagne, wants the SWC can sensation to adopted across all major football associations.

The SWC has had some strange moments but none odder than Howard Webb spraying a white line to mark a 10 yard free-kick.

UEFA has already agreed to use the vanishing spray, which disappears within a minute, as the foam is squirted onto the pitch to mark the line where the defending team set up their defensive wall before a free kick is taken.

The SWC fans have had quite a laugh about the proposed move but it has been very sufficient so far in Brazil.

"Some people have been conservative but I hope that people around the world, including the Premier League, will be impressed by what they have seen in this World Cup,” Allegmagne said.

Football365.com reports that the inventor was listening to the radio when he became inspired to come up with a plan to solve the technical problems referees come up against.

“It came to me I could do something. I wanted to solve a technical problem that had been plaguing football for more than a century.”

The spray costs around £3 (R55) per can.
