The use of goal-line video technology remains on FIFA's agenda for October after football's governing body confirmed that its lawmaking panel will not discuss the issue at its meeting this week.

The International Football Association Board meets in Cardiff on Wednesday but FIFA says "the only point on the agenda" is the continuing experiment with extra assistant referees behind the goals.

The system was tested in last season's Europa League. FIFA president Sepp Blatter last month said IFAB would look at goal-line technology this week following his apology to England and Mexico for the officiating errors that helped eliminate them from the World Cup.

On July 8, he said the matter would be on the agenda in October.
