FIFA considering new handball rule Last Updated: Thursday, July 8, 2010 | 4:43 PM ET The Associated Press A game-saving deliberate handball by Luis Suarez, left, has sparked debate over a possbile rule change. (Roberto Schmidt/AFP/Getty Images) FIFA will look at changing soccer's rules after a goal-line handball by Uruguay striker Luis Suarez denied Ghana a place in the World Cup semifinals. FIFA president Sepp Blatter says changes can be considered at an October meeting of its rules-making panel, which will also reopen the debate on using technology to decide if a ball has crossed the goal-line. That discussion was expected this month. Blatter dismissed creating a rule to award "penalty goals" when handballs clearly prevented a score. But he said the rules panel could "take on such situations" witnessed at the World Cup, such as when Suarez swatted away a certain Ghana goal. Ghana missed the ensuing penalty and Uruguay won their quarter-final in a shootout.
