The article reports that world football's governing body FIFA will next month test the use of microchip sensors inside footballs, in a bid to end the debate over goal-line technology. The controversy surrounding the use of technology in football was reignited this month when Tottenham Hotspur of England were denied a goal against Manchester United Football Club of England at Old Trafford when both the referee and linesman failed to spot the ball clearly going over the line. Similar to Cyclops technology in tennis, the system involves sensors on the goal line and a microchip in the ball, which will bleep once it has fully crossed the line.
