Drop Ball.

Drop Ball

Drop Ball

You’ve awarded a drop ball inside the penalty area. One of the players who contests the drop is the defending goalkeeper – who, as soon as it lands, dives on to the ball and smothers it.
Is this legal?

 

You are the ref

Read the statements below and decide which is best. In this case, can the keeper do this?
Yes - the keeper can do this.

Well done! This is correct.

The goalkeeper is allowed to do this. However, you must also consider whether it dangerous play. If you think that it was dangerous, either for the goal keeper or the opponent, then you should award an indirect free-kick against the goalkeeper.

No - the keeper can't do this.

Sorry. This is not the correct answer.

Well, I didn´t know it was legal. I thought that players could use only feet to try getting the ball in play. That's great learning for me today.
