Goal-line technology 'possible' next season

Goal-line technology could be used as early as next season in the Premier League, according to the English FA.

The general secretary of the FA, Alex Horne, says the laws governing football are likely to change if one or more of the systems currently being tested works.

"Goal-line technology would be a huge boost for the game," he said. "For years, we've thought this was a good addition to referees' armoury."

Nine systems are currently under review by an independent testing authority employed by Fifa. A final decision is set to be made next July.

"It's possible we could see (goal-line technology) in the Premier League as early as 2012-13," he said.
