The Antidibu Law came out: changes for goalkeepers in penalty kicks

The International Football Association Board (IFAB) and the FIFA officially announced the main changes that came into force as of last July 1 and that were called “Antidibu Law” with the purpose of sanctioning the action that had Emiliano “Dibu” Martinez, the goalkeeper of the world champion Argentina team, during the definitions by kicks from the penalty spot against the Netherlands and France in the last World Cup in Qatar.

He “trash talk” (trash talk) and the methods of psychological harassment that Martínez used They did not go unnoticed by the authorities. Por that from now on, the archer may not move from the goal line and must remain facing the performer until the moment of execution. “The goalkeeper will not behave in a way that distracts the kicker in an illegal way, for example, he will not delay the execution of the penalty or touch the posts, the crossbar or the net of the goal”, maintains the new wording of the rule 14.

In this way, an archer may not throw the ball away from the kicker before taking charge of the maximum sentence, approaching to speak or delaying the execution when conversing with the main referee or the rival. Neither may touch the posts, the crossbar or the goal net.

Last month, after the impending rule change came to light, “Dibu” had stated: “I always said that after the Copa América I didn’t know if I would do it again. I already saved the penalties that I had to save. And now the same thing happened to me, I don’t know if I’m going to save a penalty 20 years from now, maybe not, but the ones I had to save in the Copa América and in the World Cup I could save and help the team win , with that it’s enough for me”, then pointed out the world champion archer who continues to tour Bangladesh.
