The time-honored tradition of the FIFA World Cup is getting a surge of new technology when it kicks off in Brazil. This year, the referees will get a sophisticated camera network to help verify goals, cutting the chances of controversy. CNET's Kara Tsuboi explains how this goal line tech works.
During France vs. Honduras, most naked eyes say the ball didn't cross the goal line, but new technology disagreed.
For the first time ever, the world's soccer governing body has permitted technology to help game officials detect whether the ball enters the goal.
Referees will be left in no doubt when a goal has been scored as Hawk-Eye goal-line technology comes to British football.
The broadcast will use a record number of cameras to capture angles that put viewers in the middle of the action.
