The FA is is to approach Fifa in the hope of persuading the sport’s governing body to allow it to use video evidence to punish players retrospectively for diving.
“Basically we want Fifa to be more flexible on how video evidence can be used for disciplinary matters,” an FA spokesman said.
“We have only raised it in principle at the moment and we will ask again at the Fifa Board meeting in March.”
The FA already uses video evidence retrospectively for certain situations, such as cases of wrongful dismissal or where a referee did not see an incident.
“We already use video evidence more than every other country,” the FA spokesman added. “We know that there is a need to protect the authority of the referee but also to protect the sense of fairness and justice.”
