The Laws of the game regarding defensive wall management has changed which makes some of the videos not applicable. Just a reminder Goalkeepers facing free-kicks will no longer have to deal with intruders in their defensive wall.
This has often caused management problems for the referee and wasted time, while it is also against the spirit of the game.
From now on, when there is a wall of three or more defenders, the attacking players will not be allowed within a yard of it. If one is caught standing within that area when the free-kick is taken, the referee will award an indirect free-kick against them.
