Debut for goal-line technology

FOOTBALL: Goal-line technology was used for the first time yesterday during the opening game of the Club World Cup in Japan. Two systems are being trialled during the tournament, which Chelsea join on Wednesday: GoalRef, which uses a microchip in the ball, and Hawk-Eye, successfully used in cricket and tennis. Governing body Fifa will choose one system to use at the 2013 Confederations Cup in Brazil.
