FA repeats technology call after QPR ghost goal

Published:

BOLTON, England (AP) -- England's Football Association has reiterated its desire to see goal-line technology introduced "as soon as possible" after Queens Park Rangers were denied a clear goal during a Premier League match against relegation rival Bolton on Saturday.

Video replays showed Clint Hill's header in the 20th minute crossed the line before Bolton goalkeeper Adam Bogdan clawed the ball back into play. The score was 0-0 at the time.

The incident came a week after the International Football Association Board, football's rule-makers, approved two devices for a final round of testing in match scenarios before either can be sanctioned for competitive play.

The FA says Saturday it will "continue to press for its introduction once further independent testing is complete."
