In order to reduce the likelihood that they will be sent out, goalkeepers at the World Cup will not be reserved to draw the finish line during penalty shootings, said the Football Legislature, IFAB, Friday.

– Full Women's World Championship  IFAB said it had approved a request from the global governing body FIFA for a temporary waiver from the requirement to apply to a keeper punished for the offense.
"Both FIFA and IFAB … believe that the requirement to cautiously offend an offender goalkeeper from the pen alty Mark (KFPM) in matches with video assistant judges is not necessary and risking unduly distorting the KFPM" if a goalkeeper is sent out, "IFAB said in a statement.
IFAB added that the presence of VAR increases the likelihood that offenses are "There is a higher risk that a goalkeeper will be sent out to get another caution if one has already notified in the normal time or two warnings during the KFPM, as the goalkeepers are likely to face a number of kicks during the KFPM.
Questions that users were punished by VAR to get out of line have been in the limelight of the Women & # 39; s World Cup.
Three goalkeepers so far have shown yellow cards in the tournament to violate this law.

Renard got the chance to resume the penalty and scored.

Three penalties have been resumed at the World Cup because the goalkeeper did not have at least one foot on the goalline and kicked a debate on whether or not VAR would rule on the case.
The targets will continue to be booked to get out of line before the sanctions are taken in "normal time" when IFAB said it would be unfair for those who had already been warned about similar offenses if they changed the rule halfway through the tournament.
"At the end of the tournament, disciplinary sanctions for offenses committed by the goalkeeper in penalties may be further discussed within IFAB's panels," the chairman of the FIFA Judges Committee, Pierluigi Collina, said in a statement.
Before the rule of change, which entered into force on June 1
In an interview with FIFA, Collina referred to the inconsistent enforcement of the old rule.
"We discussed this issue with players and coaches and finally decided to help goalkeepers by letting them only have one foot on the finish line instead of two," Collina said. "Since the change is their job certainly easier than before, and it is also easier for them to respect the current law than the previous version. Then, if a law exists, the judges must enforce it – especially when tools like VAR or GLT are available . "
The World Cup's last 16 matches begin Saturday.
