Goal-line technology came under fire in Ligue 1 on Saturday after it incorrectly awarded a goal to Rennes in their match against Caen

Goal-line technology came in for criticism in France on Saturday after it incorrectly awarded a goal to Rennes against Caen.

With Caen 1-0 up in the 57th minute, Rennes' Wahbi Khazri, on loan from Sunderland, looked to have curled his corner into the back of the net.

But replays showed the ball clearly did not cross the line as goalkeeper Rémy Vercoutre punched the ball away from the goal-line, but the goal-line technology awarded the hosts a goal.

The watch worn by referee Amaury Delerue vibrated, indicating to the match official that the ball crossed the line.

Delerue initially gave a goal, but after complaints from the Caen players and having taken advice from his fellow officials, the referee chalked off Khazri's strike.

Caen held on to a 1-0 win, but questions will now surely be raised over the accuracy of the technology.
