FIFA president Sepp Blatter says Frank Lampard's notorious non-goal against Germany at the 2010 World Cup is the reason that goal-line technology is to be installed later this year.

Hawk-Eye and GoalRef systems will be trialled at the Club World Cup in December before being used in the Confederations Cup next year and then the 2014 World Cup.
