FALTAS, CONDUTA ANTIDESPORTIVA E LESÕES

The Laws of the Game regarding what constitutes a cautionable offence will apply during ADG. With the exception of the denying an obvious goal-scoring opportunity, as specified in Law 35A player "denying an obvious goal-scoring opportunity to an opponent moving towards the opponents' goal by an offence punishable by a free kick" (during normal play), is not sent off or cautioned., laws regarding what constitutes a sending-off offence will also apply. Let's examine fouls, misconduct and injuries with the 2006 FIFA World Cup final as a hypothetical example.

Example 1

During the first contest the French defender Sagnol makes a careless tackle on the Italian attacker Del Piero. The foul occurs outside the penalty area. Despite Del Piero having a clear path towards goal, as per Law 35A player "denying an obvious goal-scoring opportunity to an opponent moving towards the opponents' goal by an offence punishable by a free kick" (during normal play), is not sent off or cautioned., Sagnol is not sent off or cautioned. As per Law 24If 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 Del Piero is in the penalty area when he's brought down by a careless tackle from Sagnol. It's an obvious goal scoring opportunity for Del Piero, so as per the Laws of the GameWhere a player commits an offence against an opponent within their own penalty area which denies an opponent an obvious goal-scoring opportunity and the referee awards a penalty kick, the offending player is cautioned., Sagnol is cautioned. It's Sagnol's second yellow card, so he is sent off. As per Law 24If 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 15If 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. The foul occurs outside the penalty area but is deemed reckless enough to warrant a yellow card. It's Sagnol's second yellow card, so he is sent off. As per Law 24If 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 15If 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 4

During the first contest Sagnol fouls Del Piero with a careless challenge outside the penalty area. As per Law 24If 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 33Each 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 5

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 the Laws of the GameWhere a player denies the opposing team a goal or an obvious goal-scoring opportunity by a deliberate handball offence the player is sent off wherever the offence occurs., Sagnol is sent off.

Example 6

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 13If 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 7

During the first contest the French goalkeeper Barthez is injured and has to leave the field. As per Law 33Each 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 8

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 Law 33Each team is allowed two additional substitutions and if a team has any unused substitutions, these can also be used., the French can use one of their additional substitutions to 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 10An 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 being further disadvantaged by Barthez's sending off.
