Controversial Equaliser puzzle.

Controversial Equaliser

Controversial Equaliser

In the last seconds of a cup tie, the away team score a dramatic last minute equaliser from a corner. You give the goal, and play restarts. But then one of your assistants informs you that the away side had 12 players on the pitch when the goal was scored – one of their substitutes had come on unnoticed seconds earlier.
Can you answer the questions?

You are the ref

Read the questions below. Think about the best way to answer them and then click on the buttons to see how referee Keith Hackett would deal with the situation.
What would you do with the spare player?

Show the ‘spare’ player the yellow card for entering the field of play without your permission, and order him to leave the field.

Can you disallow the goal?

Yes, disallow the goal, because if there is an illegal number of players on the field, you are required to restart the game from a suitable point – and in this situation, the suitable point would be before the goal was scored. So restart play with a retaken corner kick.

How do you re-start?

If there is an illegal number of players on the field, you are required to restart the game from a suitable point – and in this situation, the suitable point would be before the goal was scored. So restart play with a retaken corner kick.

Great answers. It would have been nicer to have choice options to provide an answer to each question.
