A goal from Klose had helped put Germany 2-1 ahead when a Frank Lampard shot in the 38th minute hit the underside of the crossbar, bounced down over the goal-line and came back out. Uruguayan referee Jorge Larrionda and his assistants failed to see that the ball had clearly crossed the line and no goal was given, with Germany going on to win the last 16 match 4-1.
The Bayern Munich striker does not understand why technology cannot be used which tells officials instantly whether a goal has been scored or not.
He said: "If the technology is there, whether it's a chip in the ball or a goal-line camera. If these technical things are there then they should be used.
"Television evidence is another thing altogether, what I am talking about is chip technology or goal-line cameras. It's visible in tennis, it's visible in other sports, so why not in football as well?"
The sport's world governing body FIFA have said they have no plans for further experiments with goal-line technology, although they came under pressure to revise that policy today following events in Bloemfontein yesterday.
They found a supporter though in Germany midfielder Sami Khedira, with the Stuttgart man saying: "The discussion has been going on for a long time now but, to be frank, we as players are happy with the way it is. Because in the long run, these things even out and get balanced out. It's all part of the game and part of the emotions that define football as a game."
