of play and the same distance from the goal line as the depth of the goal
net and 1m

instead of a named player at the start of the match and the referee is not
informed of this change:

substitute

iii.                  The number of substitutions allowed by the offending
team is not reduced

iv.                 The referee reports the incident to the appropriate

Law 8 - The Start and Restart of Play ADD Infringements and sanctions. The

opponents' goal, a goal kick is awarded
