England’s footballers are to be given a crash course in the new disciplinary rules being implemented in time for the World Cup amid concerns behind the scenes that Gareth Southgate’s players do not fully understand the changes that could mean retrospective action taking place in the same matches.
Southgate has held one meeting with his squad to explain there will be a new regulation, to work alongside VAR, whereby match officials can be made aware of incidents that went unnoticed at the time and the relevant players can face yellow or red cards.
That meeting took http://www.officialfloridapanthers.com/Adidas-Keith-Yandle-Jersey place Jeff Locke">http://www.official49erslockerroom.com/elite-jeff-locke-jersey">Jeff Locke Jersey on Saturday morning at England’s team hotel when the manager explained to his players that their on-pitch behaviour will be under scrutiny like never before. Referees will now have the powers to take action at half-time, for example, if they are made aware of an incident from the opening 45 minutes.
“Not that we are looking to get away with anything, but if we thought we could that’s gone now,” Southgate said. “We have to be vigilant in all areas of the pitch.
“We’re not 100% sure yet [of the rule] until we have the full briefing on whether this situation – something happening 20 minutes before half-time and then [punishment] being implemented at half-time – is a reality. But there have been tackles in recent games that would be pulled up and might be yellow or red cards. For all our players, it’s something we have to be aware of.”
One example was a two-footed challenge by Ashley Young on Davide Zappacosta during the friendly against Italy in March. Southgate also explained that, in theory, players attempting to con the referees by diving will not get away with it like they have before – and are now more likely Womens Vin Baker Jersey to be punished for it, whether that means at the time or later in the same game.
Raheem Sterling was booked for a penalty-area dive in the 2-1 friendly victory against Nigeria on Saturday, just a matter of hours after Southgate had organised a meeting specifically to deal with this kind of incident, but the England manager said he was confident that the players would understand the increased dangers by the time they flew to Russia on Tuesday week.
“They recognised that Kevin Byard Jersey this is going to come in,” Southgate said, when asked http://www.authenticbrewershop.com/authentic-46-corey-knebel-jersey.html whether the players had grasped the rule changes. “It’s a system everybody is still getting used to and how it’s implemented is going to be key.
“If you look at any corner, for example, and go looking for infringements you could find hundreds. How that is going to be interpreted is going to be really important for the consistency in the tournament.
“I’m in favour [of retrospective action] for the clear and obvious errors because there have been big moments in huge tournaments – the Zidane head‑butt, the Maradona handball goal – that could be sorted out very quickly and would be an asset. The smaller fouls where there’s more interpretation involved, even when it’s been watched two or three times – I think that’s really difficult.”
Southgate was reluctant to criticise Sterling for his dive after a week of intense scrutiny on the Manchester City player. However, the manager volunteered that he had been giving serious consideration to dropping Sterling for reporting a Womens Jarrad Davis Jersey day late from a holiday in Jamaica. Sterling, in turn, has said he would have accepted losing his http://authenticoilerstore.com/mark-messier-jersey_c-432.html place as punishment. wholesale nfl jerseys from china cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys from china cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys from china cheap jerseys free shipping
