Baku, January 23, AZERTAC

UEFA’s executive committee has passed a decision to use goal-line technology at Euro 2016 this summer and in the Champions League from next season, according to The Guardian.

The suspended president, Michel Platini, had been a long-time opponent of technology but he allowed UEFA officials to review its use for Euro 2016 in his native France before his ban.

The success of goal-line technology in the Premier League and World Cup proved crucial, especially after high-profile incidents in major competitions. Ukraine were denied a goal against England at Euro 2012, while two years earlier Frank Lampard was denied a World Cup goal for England against Germany.

UEFA will maintain its system of having an extra official behind each goal-line as well as the technology.
