Dutch supremo calls for technology...

Netherlands World Cup 2010 head coach Bert van Marwijk has slammed the "scandalous" decision from FIFA to reject video technology.

The issue of replays reared its head again after Frank Lampard's goal bound effort was ruled out in England's 4-1 second round defeat to Germany, despite video showing the ball clearly crossed the line. Since the incident, the organisation's president Sepp Blatter has stated a new review will be made for systems such as Hawk Eye, after they were initially ruled out last November.

Speaking to the press in the build-up to Sunday's final against Spain, van Marwijk insisted this decision has come far too late and technology should have been implemented in South Africa.

"After the England game I said the next World Cup there will be a camera in the goal. It is almost a scandal it is not there already," Van Marwijk noted.

"It cannot be after 1966 [when a controversial goal handed England victory in the final against Germany], more than forty years ago, that we still cannot see when somebody scores a goals when the ball is half a metre over the line."
