Video Training: Deliberate Handball or not? 2 - Solutions


The following match situation is taken from FC Augsburg - Hannover 96 (German Bundesliga, referee Christian Dingert) and belongs to the category Deliberate Handball?.
You are warmly encouraged to participate in discussion by answering the poll or placing a comment. Our official solution for this situation including the re-start of play will be published soon.

The following video is placed for educational purpose only.

Our solution (and at the same time the official DFB solution):

The white-dressed defender handles the ball and thus prevents a shot from reaching the goal. Despite a relatively small distance and low chance to react, the defender clearly enlarges his body surface by significantly outstretching the left arm which is not close to the body.

The arm and hand show a clear tension underlined by the circumstance that they hardly retreat after being hit by the ball. A tensed, stretched hand and arm usually indicate that a handball must be deemed as deliberate. If it had been clearly undeliberate, one would expect that the arm and hand are not stiff but rather limp - in this case, they would clearly retreat and move after being hit by the ball.

Furthermore, the defender has a clear visual contact to the ball. His arm and hand only move out as soon as the shot on goal is pulled off. If the hand had been in a player-typical position for a long time already, this would have indicated a rather undeliberate handball. It is irrelevant that the ball came from a light deflection off the offender's knee.

Due to the negligent - and for this reason, in the sense of the Laws of the Game and the corresponding directives and guidelines, 'deliberate' - hand position and movement, the referee should have awarded a penalty kick.

For the referee, this was almost impossible to detect as, from his actually correct position, the handball was obstructed by the body of the offender. Only the first assistant referee had a small, but existing chance to spot the infringement and provide the referee with accurate pieces of information.

The defender should have been cautioned with a yellow card as a shot on goal was prevented by a deliberate handball. A red card is not necessary, as it was no clear goal or clear and obvious goal-scoring opportunity with the goalkeeper being in a good position to save the ball.

69% of the users agreed with our - and DFB's - solution.
