I just heard a BBC radio report that suggested that FIFA is considering changes of the next World Cup in Brazil, including adding two more assistant referees. No mention on what they'd do on the radio report. But it does sound like they're ruling out video review EDIT: Here's a BBC link: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/football/world_cup_2010/8801981.stm Ifab - the game's rule making body which consists of representatives of the English, Scottish, Northern Irish and Welsh FAs as well as four representatives from Fifa - is due to hold a meeting on 21 July where the issue is expected to be discussed. But Valcke said it was unlikely serious discussions would be held until a further meeting scheduled for October. In March, Ifab heard presentations from two companies pitching to introduce systems which they say provide definitive proof when the ball has crossed the line for a goal. But both the proposals from Cairos Goal-line technology, which uses a microchip inside a football and magnetic fields around the goal line, and Hawk-Eye, which uses six television cameras positioned around the goal, were rejected. The Cairos system was tested by Fifa in the World Club Championships in Japan in 2007, but despite their claims that the test was a success, Ifab again rejected the proposal in March 2008. So in short, the article sounds a lot more restrained than the radio story did.
