Goal-line technology has been given the go-ahead by the International Football Association Board (IFAB) following a vote in Zurich on Thursday.
Two systems - Hawk-Eye and GoalRef - have been approved after passing a series of scientific tests.
They will first be used at this December's Club World Cup and, if successful, at the 2013 Confederations Cup and the 2014 World Cup.
It could be implimented in the Premier League midway through next season.
Were FIFA right to vote to approve this new technology?
Has football changed for ever?
