Bacher backs technology in football

“Its been working well for cricket, its been working well for rugby and netball but in soccer they are still debating it, I don’t understand because video technology has proved to assist in terms of minimising wrong decisions,” Bacher told BuaNews.

Following two high-profile refereeing errors during the World Cup, FIFA President Sepp Blatter has promised to re-open discussions on the possibility of introducing video replays at football matches.

Video technology has been in operation in cricket for the past 18 years since its introduction in 1992. “Teams have lost matches in the past for wrong reasons and mostly due to wrong decisions and in cricket we decided to change that,” Bacher said.
