FIFA president Sepp Blatter has apologised to England and Mexico for the refereeing errors that helped eliminate them from the World Cup and says FIFA will reopen the debate on introducing video technology. Earlier Nicolas Maignot informed the media that the International FA Board, which Fifa is a member of along with the four British associations, dealt with this topic in March. A clear decision on the use of technology was taken at the time.

on 29th June Blatter apologized to the team officials of England and Mexico, and informed the media that the delegations of both teams accepted his apology.

The International Football Association Board (IFAB) convened at the Home of FIFA in Zurich for the 124th Annual General Meeting decided that the goal-line technology would not be pursued. FIFA sticks to its stand for the same.


Blatter said FIFA will "reopen the file" on video technology at a meeting of its rule-making panel in Wales next month.

He added that it would be "a nonsense" not to consider changes.
