Feyenoord beat PSV as goal-line technology gives tightest of decisions
Feyenoord took another step to the Eredivisie title on Sunday, but needed the aid of one of the tightest goal-line technology decisions you'll ever see to beat PSV Eindhoven.
PSV, the current champions, looked to have snatched a point at De Kuip when Gaston Pereiro levelled Jens Toornstra opener -- but then came the dramatic winner for the home side in the 82nd minute.
Jens Toornstr delivered from a corner and Jan-Arie van der Heijden headed towards goal, with his effort fumbled on the line by PSV goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet before he finally took control of the ball.
But to the disbelief of both Zoet and his teammates, referee Bas Nijhuisduring blew for a goal and pointed to his watch to indicate goal-line technology had given the decision.

PSV players continued to protest, unable to accept the whole of the ball had actually crossed the whole of the line. And when the goal decision system showed the final position of the ball, it had gone in my mere millimetres.
Even at the final whistle the visiting players continued to protest to the officials, but you cannot argue with the technology. The 2-1 win left Feyenoord seven points clear of Ajax at the top of the table, with PSV a further four points back.
