UEFA referees chief
Blatter, who hopes to convince the game's rule-makers - the International Football Association Board - to give technology the green light, posted on Twitter: "After last night's match GLT is no longer an alternative but a necessity."
But Collina, who was once widely regarded as the world's best referee, claimed Wednesday's (AEST) mistake was the first failure in "thousands of matches" in which five officials had been used.
"This is the only problem we have had," he said in
"It's one negative decision in three years of Champions League and two years of Europa League and 24 matches in the Euro.
"I would be very happy to know if the same questions would have been asked without yesterday's decision."
Blatter became a convert to goalline technology after
That failed to convince UEFA president Michel Platini - the favourite to succeed Blatter as the most powerful man in world football - who remained wedded to his belief additional assistant referees (AARs) behind each goal was the best way forward.
Yet, Wednesday's referee, assistant referee and AAR all failed to spot Devic's shot had narrowly crossed the line before
That left Platini red-faced after he made bold claims on the eve of the game about the effectiveness of five officials.
He said: "With five, officials see everything.
"They don't take decisions without being fully aware.
"There's also a uniformity of refereeing. For example, they don't call unintentional handballs. That uniformity has led to more flowing football."
Platini also attempted to justify his opposition to goalline technology.
"Goal-line technology isn't a problem," he said.
"The problem is the arrival of technology because, after, you'll need technology for deciding handballs and then for offside decisions and so on. It'll be like that forever and ever.
"It'll never stop. That's the problem I have."
However, the introduction of some form of goalline technology into football is now virtually inevitable.
IFAB is expected to approve at least one of two systems that have been subject to in-depth testing when they meet in
Hawk-Eye, the camera-based system made famous after being successfully introduced to tennis, and GoalRef, which relies on a chip in the ball, were both selected for further tests at IFAB's meeting in March.
One of them could be introduced for the first time at December's FIFA Club World Cup in
England's friendly win against
"It is a big talking point. We have supported goal-line technology for a long time.
"Hopefully that might take it over the edge."
UEFA president Michel Platini said preparations for Euro 2016 were "progressing well" after a meeting of the organising committee in Lille.
