Good Move! Don't wanna see goal like Lampard's anymore!
A short video explaining the experiment with additional assistant referees will be shown at stadiums and by broadcasters as the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League start.
it was used in EUROPA CUP last season. and was a success. also in some u-23 international games it has also been used
this season it is also going to be used in Champions League.
not only line goal line decisions, also to monitor off the ball player movements in penalty box during corners and freekicks, and closer looks at handballs, fouls and drivings in penalty box.
most of the time referees or linesman are off the pace and cant see things happening in box clearly. thats why these referees will monitor goal line and penalty box incidents
