VIDEO: Fulham star Heitinga thinks he scores - HawkEye gets it wrong?

England Disallowed Goal V Germany

No, the technology got it spot on with just a millimetre of the ball touching a slither of the line.

HawkEye works! Or so it seems…

Today the goal-line technology introduced at the start of the season has finally received its biggest test yet at Craven Cottage.

Take a look at this video of Johnny Heitinga hitting a stinging shot against Newcastle United this afternoon…

Goal right? Certainly looks it to the untrained eye, and ignore the off-side Cauley Woodrow tucking away the rebound, but this did not count.

Twitter was awash with people saying the system had failed - the referee must not have received his beep because this looked like a bolt on goal for the Dutchman.

In the Sky Soccer Saturday studio they could not believe it - Chris Kamara also suggesting the system had failed.

But then the replays came in that vindicate HawkEye.

Quite literally a millimetre of the ball was clinging on to the goal-line - leaving most observers absolutely dumbfounded.

But a win for technology as the right decision was made after all.
