It is a _____ when a player, other than the goalkeeper, deliberately controls the ball using his hand. Double meaning. For me it's the athlete's fault...

Question 10 is incorrect. It is the referee who decides how much time to add but for the fourth official

Hi Ridiomas 

I'm afraid we can't give you any advice about migrating. It's all very complicated to migrate to the UK. I recommend you try to talk to someone in the embassy in Colombia.

Thanks

I didn't know the fourth official is in charge of adding the time extra after the time reglementary has passed. I always thought the referee has had the decision final about this.
