Yokohama: Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech, who was the victim of a "phantom goal" in a Champions League semi-final, said on Monday he was delighted to be featuring in a FIFA trial of goal-line technology.

Cech was between the posts during Luis Garcia's infamous "ghost goal" for Liverpool against the London club in the 2004/05 semi-final.

The match, in which the current Blues' coach Rafael Benitez was in the home dugout at Anfield, ended Chelsea's quest to become champions of Europe that season. Liverpool went on to collect the crown.
