Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech is happy to be a guinea pig in football's latest technology experiment.

The Club World Cup is notable for the use for the first time in football of goalline technology, something of which Cech heartily approves.

"I'm very happy with the decision and the trial," said Cech. "I've been saying for the last 10 years that the game needed it. You can see with history that results in certain competitions could have been different.

"As a player you would rather wait a bit longer to have a correct decision rather than be disappointed, so I'm glad it's come in and I hope everything goes smoothly and we will see the benefits of it."
