FIFA president Sepp Blatter has rejected any possibility of 'penalty goals' being brought in following Luis Suarez's handball that denied Ghana a World Cup semi-final place.

Blatter did say however that any law changes being considered as a result of the Uruguay striker's actions would be discussed at the International FA Board in October. Blatter also clarified that the October meeting would be the first discussion of goal-line technology rather than, as initially suggested by FIFA, later this month.

Blatter told a press conference in Johannesburg: "That meeting in October is when we will discuss the question of goal-line technology and take on such situations as we have witnessed in this competition with Suarez in the last minute of the match between Uruguay and Ghana."
