Essam Abdel-Fattah, head of the Football Association’s referees committee, attributed the abolition of Al-Ahly’s goal against the National Bank to new updates to the mouse protocol.

Amin Omar canceled the goal scored by Mahmoud Waheed in the 30th minute of the first half, after the ball was not repaired by Rami Rabia as he played the fixed ball just before the goal.

Abdel-Fattah said in statements to the channel “On Time Sports 1”: “Al-Ahly’s goal at the National Bank is incorrect, even without the use of video technology, and the law stipulates that the ball free must be fixed when playing.”

A source from the refereeing staff, Laila Koura, says the reason for the goal’s disallowance is the update of the VAR protocol, which referees were trained on earlier this year.

According to the International Football Association Board (IFAB) update on the VAR protocol, the update consists of deleting the sentence (but not the decision that will be made) and not adding new cases in the intervention VAR, as this update has been interpreted without reference to the existence of an amendment.

According to the VAR protocol published on the official website of the International Football Association Board, the definition of error is clear:

But here the mouse protocol win explicitly talks about the legality of modifying the call (for corner kicks, throws, etc.) as long as play resumes and says he can’t be seen again.

Essam Abdel-Fattah believes that the case of the execution of a fixed free kick is one of the cases that does not include the modification of the restart of the game, since this is limited to the cases already calculated and the mouse does not have the right to intervene to correct them, considering that the intervention to correct the violation is an application of the spirit of the protocol and the law.
