FIFA goal-line technology used at Club World Cup


YOKOHAMA, Japan (AP) — The first FIFA goal-line technology was used during the opener of the Club World Cup, when J-League champion Sanfrecce Hiroshima beat Auckland City 1-0 Thursday.

The magnetic-field-based system GoalRef will be used for the matches in Yokohama, while the matches at Toyota Stadium will be equipped with the camera-based Hawk-Eye system.

Toshihiro Aoyama scored in the 66th minute with a hard shot from 20 yards. Ryota Moriwaki nearly doubled Sanfrecce's advantage in the 85th with a shot that hit the crossbar.

The ninth Club World Cup features the champions from FIFA's six confederations, plus a team from the host nation. Champions League winner Chelsea and Copa Libertadoes champion Corinthians have a bye into the semifinals.
