WILLIAM MISSES FA CUP FINAL Marriage vs Football - often a difficult choice Apparently some things are even more important than football. A double-header of royal wedding and FA Cup final meant that the President of the FA, Prince William, had to forgo the match of the day. Kensington Palace announced "The Duke of Cambridge will not be attending the FA Cup final due to his responsibilities as best man at his brother's wedding.” Former England footballer and television presenter Gary Lineker described it as a “marriage made in heaven,” referring to the clash between Chelsea and Manchester United.

DOGSO FA Cup Final Wembley Stadium Denying an obvious goal scoring opportunity (DOGSO) used to be an automatic red card. Two years ago, however, the Laws were changed so that DOGSO fouls inside the penalty area that involve a genuine attempt to play the ball are now only cautioned (yellow card). Note that outside the penalty area, all DOGSO fouls remain sending-off offences unless the referee plays advantage. FA Cup final referee Michael Oliver demonstrated the application of the DOGSO Law when awarding a penalty to Chelsea: https:// www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xo2Bk8jCiLQ 03

SIMULATION England v Nigeria Raheem Sterling was shown a yellow card for simulation during England’s friendly against Nigeria last Saturday. http:// www.dailymotion.com/video/x6kwp47 Simulation is defined as “attempting to deceive the referee by feigning injury or pretending to have been fouled.” A player guilty of simulation must be cautioned for unsporting behaviour. Referees look for certain clues to spot simulation, such as those described by British psychologist Paul Morris who coined the term “archer’s bow” to describe the unnatural position of the arms, chest, and head of players who dive.

FREE KICK Brazil vs Zaire 1974 FIFA World Cup Free kicks were part of the original 1863 Laws of the Game and were defined as “the privilege of kicking at the ball, without obstruction in such a manner as the kicker may think fit.” These days opponents are required to remain at least 10 yards from the ball until it is kicked and clearly moves. Failure to respect the required distance is sanctioned with a yellow card. At the 1974 FIFA World Cup, Zaire defender Mwepu Ilunga evidently had difficulty understanding the nuances of Law 13: https:// www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYDXkVGpMpc 06

It’s a close call! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ioai8yk0zj0 07
