Week 1 Laws of the Game Quiz 2019-2020

The new quiz season starts. Are you prepared? Good luck with Week 1 Laws of the Game Quiz 2019-2020.

I was triggered by a quote from Riem Hussein, Women’s World Cup referee in 2019. She says On Deutche Welle (in English): 

“In theory, there were a huge number of changes. My fist thought was that I would perhaps forget about one or two of them in the heat of a game — but that was definitely not the case. We referees are supposed to, and ultimately did consistently implement the new rules.”

Are you ready? Make sure you practice with the weekly quizzes on my blog.

  1. Great useful way of testing myself. Thank you! I would change the wording of the back pass one as it does not need to be a “back pass”. Instead, “the ball is deliberately kicked to the goal keeper or in the goal keeper’s general direction.” I read somewhere just yesterday that a deliberate kick is made with the foot, not the shin or the knee etc…

    • The latter is correct. As you pass a ball with your foot, it’s the same as kicking it back. So no question for me if this was with the foot. Curious if others would call header back also a pass.

  2. Question on hitting ball on arm not deliberate and arm in natural position, than goes to team mate who scores. Should be a goal as the ball did not go into goal immediately from arm or hand.

    Second question; isn’t the new rule when a player is injured by a foul from the opposition, that player is allowed to be treated on the field?

    • Hi Michael, check the explanations of the questions after submitting. Ball on hand in a situation like that means NO goal.
      And the injured player: only when there is a card issued.
