Sir Geoff backs Harry Redknapp's call for goal-line technologySource: BBC 5 Live

After two contentious goals allow Chelsea to celebrate victory over Tottenham Hotspur, Sir Geoff, who famously scored a goal in the 1966 World Cup Final thanks to a marginal call in the same circumstances, talks to Garry Richardson on BBC 5 Live about goal-line technology.
Speaking to BBC Sportsweek, Geoff said: "We have it in all the major sports - tennis, cricket, snooker. It's our national game, the world's biggest game and I'm continually astounded that Fifa, the governing body, haven't introduced it just for the goal-line itself, not to go anywhere else.
"Every football person who has played the game or watched the game would say it's got to be introduced but a small handful of people in Zurich decide, because it's not their idea, that they're not going to use it."
