Even if a lot of fans don’t really like it, we’re mostly used to technology playing a part in the highest levels of football.
It’s absence caused a lot of issues last week as Cristiano Ronaldo’s late winner against Serbia didn’t count as the officials didn’t see the ball crossing the line, but it’s sort of levelled things out today as it came to his aid.
