FAUTES, INCORRECTIONS ET BLESSURES

Nous utiliserons la finale de la Coupe du Monde de la FIFA 2006 en tant que scénario hypothétique pour fournir quelques exemples de fautes, incorrections et blessures.

Example 1

During the first contest the French defender Sagnol makes a careless tackle on the Italian attacker Del Piero. Despite Del Piero having a clear path towards goal, as per Law 33A player who commits an offence which denies an obvious goal-scoring opportunity to an opponent, is not cautioned or sent off unless:

• The offence is holding, pulling or pushing, in which case the player is cautioned.

• The offending player does not attempt to play the ball, or there is no possibility for the player making the challenge to play the ball, in which case the player is cautioned.

• The offending player deliberately handles the ball (except a goalkeeper within their penalty area), in which case the player is sent off.

• The offence is one which is always punishable by a yellow or red card. (e.g. reckless or excessive force challenge)
, Sagnol is not cautioned or sent off. As per Law 23If the defending team commits a foul anywhere within the field of play, the attacker is awarded a penalty kick and the thirty second time period is disregarded for the remainder of the contest., Del Piero receives a penalty kick.

Example 2

During the first contest Sagnol fouls Del Piero. The foul is deemed reckless enough to warrant a yellow card. It's Sagnol's second yellow card, so he is sent off. As per Law 23If the defending team commits a foul anywhere within the field of play, the attacker is awarded a penalty kick and the thirty second time period is disregarded for the remainder of the contest., Del Piero receives a penalty kick. And as per Law 12If a team is unable to field a defender or an eligible substitute, the attacker will compete one-on-one against the goalkeeper., Del Piero will now compete one-on-one against Barthez.

Example 3

During the first contest Sagnol fouls Del Piero with a careless challenge. As per Law 23If the defending team commits a foul anywhere within the field of play, the attacker is awarded a penalty kick and the thirty second time period is disregarded for the remainder of the contest., the attacking team receives a penalty kick. Del Piero is injured and is assisted from the field. As per Law 32Each team is allowed two additional substitutions and if a team has any unused substitutions, these can also be used., the Italians can replace Del Piero with an additional substitution. The substitute will then take the penalty kick.

Example 4

During the first contest Del Piero strikes a powerful shot towards goal. Sagnol deliberately handles the ball to deny an obvious goal scoring opportunity. As per Law 33A player who commits an offence which denies an obvious goal-scoring opportunity to an opponent, is not cautioned or sent off unless:

• The offence is holding, pulling or pushing, in which case the player is cautioned.

• The offending player does not attempt to play the ball, or there is no possibility for the player making the challenge to play the ball, in which case the player is cautioned.

• The offending player deliberately handles the ball (except a goalkeeper within their penalty area), in which case the player is sent off.

• The offence is one which is always punishable by a yellow or red card. (e.g. reckless or excessive force challenge)
, Sagnol is sent off.

Example 5

During the first contest the attacker Del Piero fouls the defender Sagnol. The foul is deemed to be committed with excessive force and Del Piero is sent off. If ADG enters sudden death, then as per Law 9If a team is unable to field their designated attacker or an eligible substitute, the team will forfeit that contest., Italy will forfeit the first sudden death contest because they will be unable to field their designated attacker.

Example 6

During the first contest the French goalkeeper Barthez is injured and has to leave the field. As per Law 32Each team is allowed two additional substitutions and if a team has any unused substitutions, these can also be used., the French can use an additional substitution to bring on a substitute goalkeeper.

Example 7

During the fifth contest the French goalkeeper Barthez fouls the Italian attacker Pirlo. The foul is deemed to have been committed with excessive force and Barthez is sent off. As per the Laws of the Game, the French can remove an outfield player and bring on a substitute goalkeeper. In the hypothetical example, the French would likely remove the current defender Gallas, and replace him with a substitute goalkeeper.

However, if the French had already used all of their substitutions, then as per Law 13An eligible player may change places with the goalkeeper., they would have to make an on-field player their goalkeeper. Once again, the current defender Gallas would be the likely choice. This allows the French to compete for the maximum number of contests, before once again being disadvantaged by the send off.
