Goal-line technology is something that the world of football has been debating for years. But finally, the governing authority has decided to get going with the technology and it is going to be one of the biggest highlights for 2018 Football World Cup in Russia.
What is the technology?
Goal-line technology is a bundle of technologies that will altogether monitor the path of the ball and will detect when the same crosses the goals line. As soon as a team makes a goal, the computer will start sending alerts to the referee to take accurate actions for restarting the play. Because instant replays are not an integral part of the game, this technology might be the only definitive way for a referee to know whether the goal has been scored or not.

FIFA, as well as the International Football Association Board (IFAB), has already approved several systems for the smooth running of his technology. Some of them are:
- Hawk’s eye
- Cairos GLT system
Altogether, 2018 Football World Cup will be full of excitement and challenges and of course, it will be en delightful experience for the spectators throughout the world.
