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.
