Australia's football federation chief Ben Buckley has offered the A-League as an official testing ground for the goal-line technology trials should the global governing body FIFA take that route. He says the infrastructure of the A-league is of a high enough quality to give it a meaningful trial adding everyone wants to see the correct decisions made by the officials, and this seems to be a way of supporting them in that, reports Radio New Zealand.

Opponents of goal-line technology, including FIFA president Sepp Blatter, say its use would break up the rhythm of a match.
