Puel's men flew out the blocks at Wembley and found the net after just 11 minutes as Manolo Gabbiadini turned home from close range, sending the success-starved Saints fans wild. However, the goal was wrongly ruled off for offside on an afternoon that ended with Manchester United lifting the EFL Cup thanks to a 3-2 triumph at Wembley, where the International Football Association Board will convene this Friday. Video technology is on the agenda for the 131st annual general meeting and Romeu hopes that changes can be made to cut out such crucial errors.
"I think that makes a massive difference in the game," the Spanish midfielder said. "We all players will agree that we want the truth to be part and to be real in the game. If it's a goal, it has to count. If it's not, it can't count. "Sometimes it can make a massive difference in a final because leading 1-0 will change dramatically the game in the other side.
"We all want to make it clear and to have it better for all the players and for all the referees and for everyone." Live video trials in football were given the go-ahead by the IFAB last March, with experimentation of technology that could assist officials with game-changing decisions beginning no later than the 2017-18 season. Asked if he thinks every player would want it brought in, Romeu added: "Oh definitely, they will agree.
"Everyone wants if it's a goal or if it's not a goal it has to count or it doesn't have to count, it's as simple as that. "The goal disallowed is something that happens and we cannot do anything about it.
"Also the referees play their part and sometimes make mistakes and sometimes they're all right, we cannot say anything, we all make mistakes. "About the feelings, they are difficult, it's a difficult game to take because it's a final, you're so close to winning a trophy, it's hard to lose in the last two or three minutes of the game."
