Two days ago, we asked you the question below. If you were the referee, what would you do if the following happened:

A goalkeeper catches the ball with his hands. For how many seconds can he hold it?

The right answer was… 3 seconds! If after three seconds the goalkeeper still holds the ball it will be a free hit for the opponent! But as one of our most loyal readers M. Sajko rightly pointed out in our Facebook Group, referees don’t have a stopwatch in their head, so don’t be surprised if you can get away with a couple of extra seconds! Did you get it right? Next week, we’ll get back to you with another Referee Question of the Week!
