FIFA President Sepp Blatter has given his backing to goal-line technology.

"We have tested 17 different goalline systems and four or five of them will go to the International Board to have a further look at them," said Blatter speaking to CNN.

"A proposed testing period will then take place with a selected number of companies, prior to the International Board's general meeting in Cardiff, Wales, on March 4-6, when the next steps of the process will be determined.

"If one of these systems is accurate and immediate and not too complicated, then I think goal-line technology has a good chance to be accepted," added Blatter.
