As with every sport, there are some rules in world football that don't make sense.

It's as if they were made up by bureaucrats who have no idea how to play the game.

The great thing about football is that it can be an entertaining game, but the current rules and regulations in place make it very difficult to sit back and enjoy a match sometimes.

After what happened yesterday, I've decided to pick five football rules that I'd change to benefit the game.
