Lusaka academy in Dana Cup confusion

DIANA MUTAKAFIMBO, Lusaka
CONFUSION erupted at the Dana Cup on Friday when German side Blau-Weiss 96 Scenefield used a goalkeeper who did not play in regulation time for penalties.
This was after the German side drew 1-1 with Lusaka Youth Soccer Academy (LYSA) in a quarter-final match.
The Dana Cup is an annual youth tournament held in Denmark and this year’s competition is taking place in Hjorring.
According to the LYSA Facebook page, the referee allowed the German side to use a goalkeeper who was not on the pitch for penalty shootouts.
LYSA raised concern with the referee but the official decided to walk away and the matter has since been taken to the jury.
According to the tournament’s rules, penalties are supposed to be taken under FIFA rules but the German side defied the rules.
LYSA qualified to the quarter-finals of the Dana Cup after beating Raufoss IL of Norway.
