FIFA could introduce extra-time substitute

Thursday 03 July 2014

FIFA are considering a proposal to introduce a rule allowing an extra substitute to be used in extra-time, with ESPN reporting the idea could be in place in time for World Cup 2018.

Gerard Houllier, the former Liverpool and Aston Villa manager who sits on the governing body’s technical study group, confirmed that the suggestion will be made. “I think that's an idea that we will put to football's rules-making panel,” he said.


“It's a good idea. Only in extra time. Maybe if someone is injured, why not? Substitutes play such an important part because they come with a freshness and attitude,” Houllier continued. “Nearly a quarter of the goals [at the current World Cup] have been scored in the final 15 minutes of the game.”


The current World Cup has seen a record number of goals scored by substitutes - 29, with the previous record of 23 set at World Cup 2006, in Germany, FIFA have said.


IFAB - the International Football Association Board - will consider the suggestion. IFAB is made up of the FAs of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, as well as FIFA.


“At this World Cup everything is going so quick, so fast, the tempo has been so high,” Houllier added. “As a technician we would like to have in extra time the possibility to have another substitution.”
