The Fifa President, Sepp Blatter, says goalline technology is "a necessity" after Ukraine became the latest victims of its absence from the game. The Euro 2012 co-hosts were denied an equaliser in Tuesday night's 1-0 defeat to England, The Guardian British newspaper reports. 

"After last night's match #GLT is no longer an alternative but a necessity," Blatter posted on Twitter.
The newspaper reminded that Blatter became a convert to goalline technology after Frank Lampard was denied a legitimate goal in England's 2010 World Cup defeat to Germany.

Then he “failed to convince the Uefa president, Michel Platini who remained wedded to his belief that additional officials behind each goal was the best way forward,” The Guardian reports.

"With five, officials see everything. They don't take decisions without being fully aware. There's also a uniformity of refereeing. For example, they don't call unintentional handballs. That uniformity has led to more flowing football," the newspaper quotes Platini.

Tuesday night's referee, Viktor Kassai and the assistant referees all failed to spot Devic's shot had narrowly crossed the line before John Terry's acrobatic clearance prevented it hitting the back of the net.

As reported, on June 19, the Ukrainian team lost 0:1 in the last Euro 2012 group stage match against England and dropped out of the tournament.
