IFAB nearly gets one right, UEFA gets it all wrong
Well, well -- how about this? Had to happen some time, I suppose, so here we are: I find myself in agreement with an IFAB decision. At least, partially so.

"This wasn't an easy decision. It's the hardest thing I've ever had to do in my entire life. I told my teammates that and I stand by that. The fact that at some point in our careers as players we're going to be able to choose where we want to live and what's best for us, in my eyes, is huge.
