Goal-line technology is making its World Cup debut in Brazil, and it was called upon to award France's second goal against Honduras on Sunday.
Karim Benzema's shot hit one post and then the other before being pushed over the line by Honduras goalkeeper Noel Valladares for an own goal.
It was unclear whether the ball was in, so the above footage illustrates why goal-line technology has its place in the game.

BBC commentator Jonathan Pearce also had some trouble with the incident on the air—prompting a predictable reaction on Twitter.
