FIFA confirms October agenda for goal-line tech 

The use of goal-line video technology remains on FIFA's agenda for October after soccer's governing body confirmed that its rule-making panel will not discuss the issue at its meeting this week.

The International Football Association Board meets in Cardiff, Wales, on Wednesday but FIFA says "the only point on the agenda" is the continuing experiment with extra assistant referees behind the goals.

The video system was tested in last season's Europa League.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter said last month that IFAB would look at goal-line technology this week following his apology to England and Mexico for the officiating errors that helped eliminate them from the World Cup.

He then said on July 8 that the matter would be on the agenda in October.
