Goalkeeper making a save with an object


Well-Known Member
What would your decision be a if a goalkeeper (either inside or outside the field of play) prevented the ball entering the goal by throwing a (different) ball, boot, shinguard, bottle or jersey at it? As he/she cannot commit a handling offence in the penalty area, should it be a dropped ball for outside agent interference? If the object touches an opponent, I presume it must then be a DFK/penalty, as per the updated law 12.
