Australia Football Federation crack down on diving…

The Football Federation of Australia (FFA) announced that it would impose two-match bans on players found guilty of diving, or “simulation”, to win a penalty or have an opponent sent off.So scenes like these are going to disappear from Australia.

FIFA is yet to go where FFA are going mainly because of their obstinate stance on refusing to use technology.For years FIFA have stated in their disciplinary code that ‘the disciplinary decisions taken by the referee on the field of play during a match are final.’Hence if a referee misses an incident during a match, there is no way to retrospectively punish that player.
