Berlin: Football's governing body FIFA has had two different systems tested at a Germany stadium as they look to introduce goal line technology into top-flight football.

Both 'Goal-Ref', a system which can verify whether a goal has been scored by using a chip in the ball, and 'Hawk-Eye', the camera system already used in tennis, were tested at the Duesseldorf Arena on Tuesday.

A number of factors were included to create realistic factors which could affect the system, with testers using smoke machines and strobe lighting to replicate different weather conditions.
