Zurich • FIFA has picked the GoalControl goal-line technology system for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. It will be used first at the Confederations Cup in June.

FIFA says it chose the German camera-based, ball-tracking system over three others: GoalRef and Cairos, which both use magnetic fields; and Hawk-Eye, another camera system.

GoalControl was the last of the four to enter the contest, becoming licensed last month. FIFA says its contract with GoalControl for the World Cup can be reviewed if there are problems at the 16-match Confederations Cup.

Soccer's rule-making panel approved goal-line technology last July. FIFA President Sepp Blatter pushed for goal-line technology in Brazil after England midfielder Frank Lampard had a goal that was disallowed against Germany at the 2010 World Cup.
