GOAL-LINE TECHNOLOGY: The German Football League (DFL) has stated that "it remains unconvinced by goal-line technology" despite the opening weekend of the 1st Bundesliga season being affected by a controversial decision. TSG Hoffenheim forward Kevin Volland's goal "was not awarded after crossing the goalline during his team's 2-2 draw with FC Nuremberg on Saturday." Match referee Thorsten Kinhöfer "admitted his mistake after consulting TV replays at half-time," but the DFL will continue to wait for further testing of new technology until at least July '15. DFL Managing Dir Andreas Rettig said that FIFA's accepted margin of error of three centimeters "is simply too big for us" (SOCCEREX, 8/13).
