FIFA will change the guidelines on showing goal-line technology (GLT) replays to avoid the confusion which followed an incident in the match between France and Honduras.

The GLT replays in Porto Alegre initially flashed up 'NO GOAL' after France striker Karim Benzema's shot struck the post and then bounced against Honduras goalkeeper Noel Valladares and going just over the line.

The replay was triggered by Benzema's shot not having crossed the line, and was then followed by another GLT replay saying 'GOAL' to show that an own goal had been scored immediately afterwards.

The goal was awarded and both coaches accepted the system had worked correctly but FIFA will now ensure that near misses are not flashed up first if a goal is scored immediately afterwards.
