It is known that this proposal will be applied by FIFA to all matches around the world. However, this decision of FIFA will only last until December 31, 2020. After that, the matches will return to the rule of replacing the same 3 people
In addition, to limit the teams taking advantage of this to buy time, FIFA is considering the ability to only allow each team to replace 5 people in 3 times, change the middle of the half or limit the substitution time.
