French football league suspends the use of goal-line technology after glaring errors

The French league (LFP) has chose to "immediately suspend" the use of goal-line technology after a series of glitches with the system, LFP director general Didier Quillot said on Thursday.

Federation Internationale de Football Association has yet to confirm whether GoalControl will be used in Russia at a second straight World Cup.

The French league already said last month it wanted improvements after expressing "dissatisfaction with the failures" in several matches with GoalControl.

The system did not alert the referee when Adrien Rabiot netted Paris Saint-Germain's second goal in a 2-0 win over Amiens.

In association football, goal-line technology is a method used to determine when the ball has completely crossed the goal line in between the goal-posts and underneath the crossbar with the assistance of electronic devices.

The French league uses a different company for goal-line technology than that used in Britain, Hawk-Eye.

". the GLT experienced two serious malfunctions in the Amiens-PSG match. and a second incident in Angers-Montpellier where the GLT wrongly caused the referee's watch to vibrate", ESPN quoted LFP director general Didier Quillot as saying.

The suspension by LFP is temporary and their statement added that an adminitrative council will meet next week to decide further action regarding GoalControl.
