    Default Penalty Kick blocked

    Putting this question here as it is from a course I just completed and there is no other obvious section to post it.

    Q. A player takes a PK at goal (let's say 30m out and directly in front). An opponent is lifted by a team mate 1m in front of the crossbar, and knocks the ball sideways and backwards but preventing it from going through the goal.
    What is the correct decision?
    MUST have a Law reference to back up your answer.
    When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It is difficult only for the others.
    It's the same when you are stupid.

    illegally touching the ball.

    +10m

    Sanction: Any infringement by the opposing team results in a second penalty kick, 10 metres in front of the mark for the first kick. etc...

    depending on many variables - may consider intentionally offending/foul play.

    Its difficult to argue that a lifted blocker was not intentional

    If you were toi card though... who would you card?

    - the lifted blocker?
    - the entire lifting pod?
    - the captain/whoever made the call to lift and block (if overheard and definitive etc)
    - the caller and the entire lifting pod?

    My 2p worth - Just the player touching the ball - the lifters etc are allowed to lift, they have done nothing wrong. It's only the ball player that is offending and ONLY if they play the ball "to prevent a goal being scored". For example if the ball is falling way short then the ball player surely isn't offending at all.

    PK at the point where it was blocked and depending on the level YC for the person that has played it.

    ddjamo +10m is from Law 21.
    Blocking is law 9 and I always assumed it was a new offence.

    21.5(c) If the kicker indicates to the referee the intent to kick at goal, the opposing team must stand still with their hands by their sides from the time the kicker starts to approach to kick until the ball is kicked.
    (e) If the opposing team infringes while the kick is being taken but the kick at goal is successful, the goal stands. A further penalty is not awarded for the infringement.


    Implication (though nor clearly stated) is that an infringement of 21.5(c) results in a further penalty if the goal is not scored.

    I'd card the whole pod - but perhaps that the freedom that only comes with retirement!
    Don't feed the pedant!

    Why does the level count in this instance? curious

    I'm not sure it's a YC offence at all, it surely would have been done in ignorance of the Law, thinking it's legal. So PK only

    It's not an offence you'd commit cynically as there is no mileage in it, you save three points and give them ..... a PK in front of the posts where they can still get three points, but now have other options as well...

    Cynical offences are usually to give away 3 to avoid a likely 5 or 7
