Walcott To Play An Important Role In Euro 2012

Recommended Posts


Clubs could soon be allowed to bring on a fourth substitute in cup matches that go to extra-time.

It is one of the proposals up for discussion as FIFA lawmakers - the International Football Association Board (IFAB) - meet for their AGM in Surrey on Saturday.

The game's chiefs will also discuss goal-line technology, with a final decision on whether it will be implemented due after Euro 2012.

However, it is the suggestion of an extra sub that will raise eyebrows.

In matches that go to 30 minutes extra-time, sides can often be left disadvantaged by a late injury or general fatigue.

A new rule would allow clubs to bring on an additional substitute if they have already made three changes during normal time.

Goal-line technology, which has been heavily debated for several years, now looks increasingly likely to be brought in in time for next season in the Barclays Premier League and beyond.

The IFAB will also debate the use of vanishing spray - trialled in last year's Copa America - that is used to mark out the 10 yards where defending players must be for free-kicks
