After a FIFA U-turn Tuesday morning, at least one World Cup referee is ready to embrace goal-line technology.

English referee Howard Webb, who officiated last month's Champions League final, said he would be open to technological aid if it helps referees get the calls right.

Webb said at the latest World Cup referee's open day that "I'm open minded about anything that makes us more credible as match officials."

Webb added that "whatever tools I am given I will use them to the best of my ability."
