So Mr Blatter is back upon his horse and dealing with the most important issues facing the game of football, not TV replays or extra linesmen, but the stuttering penalty.


Blatter and co have ruled that feints at the last second before the kick is taken are illegal - the announcement in full was made by Fifa Secretary General Jerome Valcke

"Feinting in the run-up to take a penalty kick to confuse opponents is permitted, however feinting to kick the ball once the player has completed his run-up is now considered an infringement"

This rule may help goalkeepers but it definitely won't help this guy
