We have talked about SPA and how we can use S+S+O as a set of considerations to determine if an offence you observe should be cautioned for a SPA (link). Let’s review it again with another video.
Below, you will see a fast attack developing from a goal kick into the opponent’s half of the field. Speed is high. There is a lot of space. There are some options for the attacker. A twist to the story is that the AR is involved in this decision making. She flags for an offence, but fails short of letting the referee know that a yellow card should be given.
What would you do if you were this AR? Your referee calls a foul. You know it is a SPA. Would you call her over?
