Rules tweaked for Asian Cup

Geelong Advertiser - - SPORT -

NEXT year’s Asian Cup will al­low a fourth sub­sti­tute when games go to ex­tra time, the Asian Foot­ball Con­fed­er­a­tion said yes­ter­day.

The move fol­lows a change to the of­fi­cial Laws of the Game, which was also im­ple­mented at this year’s World Cup in Rus­sia.

“I am con­fi­dent the new reg­u­la­tions will add to the ex­cite­ment of Asia’s flag­ship na­tional team com­pe­ti­tion and fur­ther strengthen the AFC’s am­bi­tions to be the world’s lead­ing con­fed­er­a­tion,” AFC pres­i­dent Sheikh Sal­man bin Ebrahim Al Khal­ifa said.
