Football’s rule-makers have voted against renewing experiments with goal-line technology after hearing the latest developments from two different systems.

The International Football Association Board decided on Saturday to continue relying on humans to rule on disputed goals, rather than either the microchip ball from Cairos or the Hawk-Eye replay system.

IFAB had frozen all investigations into such technology at its annual meeting two years ago, but it was put back on the agenda for this year's meeting.

FIFA general secretary Jerome Valcke says that “now it's a decision not to keep on ice, but to just stop it.”
