Ashley Cole was the Captain of England on the friendly match against Ireland on Wednesday and the left fullback became the 7th english player to reach the 100-caps mark. Frank Lampard is only dour matches away from reaching 100 caps with the England team and he said: I saw Stevie (meaning Gerrard) get that gold cap, which was well deserved, and then Ash last night.

FIFA has already decided the use of goal-line technology in FIFA Club World Cup, which is going to take place in Tokyo. If everything goes well and the new technology passes this testing procedure, the most possible scenario is that we are going to see goal-line technology in World Cup 2014.

Hawk-Eye and GoalRef are the two innovative systems that FIFA is going to use.  Hawk-Eye is using six cameras to identify the exact location of the ball in the field and focuses on each goal, in order to indicate if the ball crossed the line or not.
