My previous post of July 1st seems to be a false theory. FIFA changed their timeline this year and published the latest edition of the Laws of the Game a little early. After all, they weren’t really waiting for anything.
More importantly, we see our next poster-child on the cover featuring the Italian UEFA Elite referee, Nicola Rizzoli. Undoubtedly Jenna‘s favourite, Rizzoli had a stellar 2014 when he became the 20th person to take charge of the World Cup final.

Return substitutions and now electronic performance tracking systems are to be introduced into the game. In my experience, I have already seen return substitutions in leagues as written in their rules. EPS, on the other hand, can become much more complicated for referees – jewellery argument.
