'If they want it, they will have it'

Sepp Blatter responds to calls for goalline technology by saying he believes it will be in place by World Cup 2014.

    Exclusive footage as FIFA President Sepp Blatter tells Al Jazeera's sports correspondent that he thinks goalline technology will be introduced by the next World Cup in Brazil.

    The International Football Association Board (IFAB) will meet after the 2011/12 European football season to decide on the implementation of technology.

    Blatter says he is confident such technology will be available to help avoid the "blatant injustice" of disallowed goals like Frank Lampard's World Cup effort for England against Germany in South Africa last year.
