Italy's Collina backs video technology

Italy's Collina backs video technology

A former top referee in Italy has spoken out in favor of using video technology during matches.
Pierluigi Collina told Gazzetta dello Sport in an interview published Tuesday that "things cannot go on like this."
Collina was quoted as saying that "we might as well use the technology, otherwise the referee remains alone in having to judge with his own eyes while all the others will be able to evaluate his decisions with increasingly perfect tools."
Calls for the use of video technology in football have increased in recent weeks after a handball during a playoff match helped France qualify for the World Cup at the expense of Ireland.
