FIFA Really Needs To Pull Its Head Out Of Its Ass

After the refereeing debacle that took place over the weekend in the England vs Germany and Mexico vs Argentina matches, the world soccer governing body FIFA has said they’ll reevaluate goal-line video technology next month during a board meeting.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter said refereeing changes won’t be made during this World Cup and that apologies were made to England and Mexico, which both sides accepted. But that doesn’t do much considering both nations are now out of the tournament.

Anyone with a pair of functioning eyes could clearly see that Frank Lampard’s shot on goal crossed the goal line. Sure, England lost 4-1 but who knows what would have happened if that goal had been allowed.

Go Orangje!
