You've awarded a penalty. Just as the penalty
taker is about to strike the ball, an opponent shouts out a remark about
the penalty takers wife. In his fury, the kicker slips and miskicks the
ball wide. What action if any, do you take?
The defender has committed an act of unsporting
behaviour, caution the offender and restart play with a retaken penalty.
A striker scuffs a crucial late penalty - but the keeper makes no attempt to stop it rolling into the net. Instead he is pointing down field at the opposition manager who has walked on to the pitch for a better view. What now?
Allow the goal. Your job at a penalty is clear: make sure the players
are correctly positioned and then give the signal for it to be taken.
The keeper's job is to save it – not to be distracted by something
happening 50 yards away. You should, though, deal with the manager's
behaviour too: remove him from the technical area, and include the
details in a special incident report.
Its the last minute of a cup final with the game tied at 1-1. You have awarded a penalty and the kicker strikes the ball over the crossbar. However a defender had encroached the penalty area so you award a retake. The kickers confidence however has now gone and he asks to be replaced by another player for the retake. Do you allow this?
Yes as long as the new penalty taker has been identified to you
