I think they should just do what they do in rugby. Where the physio comes onto the pitch as play continues, it's not like they can't play around him if they're playing round an injured player anyway.I wonder if the players knew zauri was down.
Anyway, situations like these should be avoided. I know it's technically allowed to play until the whistle, this is a special case when the offside system is being intered with. This can't continue to happen, it makes no sense. Either a rule has to be made, the ref has to be alert and use his own intuition in the situation, or the opposing team has to fair play it. None of these 3 scenarios happened and a stupid goal was scored.
If the Italian defenders knew Zauri was down though I guess we could say shame on them but the point is this situation isn't a reasonable one and is one where an adjustment is necessary....
