Has anybody read this? Some person giving their explanation on why Rodri was not sent off by Mike Oliver when he caught the Croatian player in area pen given he gets a yellow goal scoring opportunity - no red card?

The explanation was that they don't want to send top players off for tackling in the penalty area.

I have not heard of this before today so if you're a star player you don't get a red, but if you're an average player, you get a red if you tackle in the penalty area and a pen is given.

I am so fed up with the running of football and the changing of the rules to suit it is not the game i was brought up with and loved.

where did you read or hear the comment they don't want to send top players off? must of missed that. yes he should of been sent off by the law, but if you watch it I'm pretty sure he doesn't touch him its a dive to me which is strange he had a open goal.

Who wrote it? I can't see that been true, surely not?

17 Jun 2024 09:48:14
Is it up to the ref to decide whether it's a top player doing the tackling or not?
I can't wait for a case of mistaken identity. The ref blows, gives a penalty, issues a yellow and then changes it to a red when he realises it is a rubbish player ?.

I honestly didn't think it was a pen.

It looks like there is no contact and he then just kicks the floor and dives to the ground with an open goal.

Then yesterday in the Denmark game Hojland has his ankle stepped on and his boot comes off but nothing given.

For me neither is a pen but one has no contact and the other quite a bit and the non contact one is given.

Can't really make sense of it.

You are right Kloppers.
That Coeatian player should have score instead he opted dive. It was not penalty to me.

There are 20’000 reasons why Oliver would never give a decision like that against a City player and you’ll find them in his bank account.

17 Jun 2024 11:46:55
Sounds like complete nonsense to me. All refs know that millions of eyes are on them during international competitions. And the way social media is nowadays, the refs would never take the risk of getting ripped to shreds in the media.

'some person'

is this the same person who said klopp left because he had a sooky wooky about missing out on Jude?

Some of the views made it look like there was no contact but I haven't managed to find another view of it since. There must be one that shows enough to prevent them overturning it.

As for Rodri, I think he should of been sent off, I know there is the double jeapordy rule but that is only if they make an attempt at the ball, and I don't think he does in this scenario. My only explanation for it not being given on review is it wasn't a clear and obvious error and enough doubt on whethere it was a genuine attempt at the ball or not.

If this is indeed true, Ryan Porteous is sitting in the huff somewhere for being deemed so far from a "star" player that he got sent off for conceding a penalty against Germany!

17 Jun 2024 18:11:14
There was contact. It was minor and he dived after. I hate that it’s considered a foul. I hate that the player dived. But there was definite contact. Should have been a red. Saying that- can someone explain why the goal was ruled out. Surely if the player ran into the box it is a penalty to be retaken. Or am I mistaken?

17 Jun 2024 18:32:43
aoe, it shouldn't have been retaken because Croatia got the advantage by encroaching.

17 Jun 2024 19:02:59
Cool. So it would have been a free kick out if the goal had gone straight in? I always thought if that occurred it was a retaken penalty.

17 Jun 2024 19:13:48
Did a little more reading online including a rather confusing read through the fa rules on encroachment which seemed to possibly not entirely not suggest a retake- kind of. But no one else seems to have an issue with it l-so my money is on me being wrong. rigsby- spot on mate.

17 Jun 2024 19:16:15
Exactly, @aoe. For me, it was a pen regardless of whether the player dived or made a right meal of it. Why? Rodri blatantly kick at him and made blatant contact. The movement of Rodri going for the player's leg is proves intent hence, what makes it a pen, not the level of contact, IMO.

And one more thing. I did not see Rodri protest vehemently at all I think and neither do his team mates. Now why would they not protest? Cos they know Rodri is guilty as charged. It's that simple, IMO.

Now as to whether Rodri should have been sent off, I thought he should have been sent off BUT suddenly, I don't know anymore cos of this "double jeopardy" thingy where a sending off cannot be given for denying a goalscoring opportunity in the box. Or was it vice versa.

The IFAB football's lawmakers are the ones who have relaxed the rules on denying a goal. Obvious scoring opportunity is now deemed as a yellow card.
