Mr Justice Yeboah, a FIFA/CAF Instructor said the training was appropriate because of the frequent changes in the laws of the game and therefore urged referees to keep pace with new developments to be better placed to interpret them accordingly.
told them that per the new rules under Law 14, goalkeepers are now allowed to move on the goal line to either the left or right before penalty kicks are taken.
said penalty shooters can also briefly pause or break on their way to take a kick which was allowed by the law.
The Instructor said Law 11 also gives assistant referees more autonomy in deciding when a player is in an off-side position instead of only by the central referee.
said Law 12 mandates referees and their assistants to dismiss outright a player from the field of play on tackles perceived to be dangerous so as to protect and ensure the safety of players.
