Saturday September 1st, as part of the 16th Edition of the Amputee Football World Cup Turkey 2022, our Grenadiers on the lawn of the Riva 1 sports center of the Turkish Football Federation in Istanbul, faced the "One Stars" of Liberia.

For their opening match, our Grenadiers made a remarkable entrance by winning a resounding victory [4-1) against Liberia (African Cup finalist and holder of 3 titles).

In the first period Saviola Charles opened the scoring in favor of Haiti at 13' [1-0]. Score unchanged at halftime.

Learn more about amputee football :
Football for amputees follows specific rules, like any discipline adapted to a disability. The game takes place on a field of 60 meters by 40 (maximum 70 m X 60) or a classic football half-field. It has two goal cages with a maximum height of 2.2m, a width of 5m x 1m (depth) and a FIFA standard ball

The match is played in 2 periods of 25 minutes with a half-time of about ten minutes. A timeout of two minutes is authorized per team and per game. The team is made up of 7 players (6 outfield players, a goalkeeper) and substitutes.

Outfield players (excluding goalkeepers) must have a lower limb amputated. The goalkeeper must have an upper limb amputated, so a hand.

Players cannot use their crutches and stump to handle the ball. If this happens, it's considered a "hand" unless it's unintentional.

In addition, the use of the crutch against a player results in exclusion and a penalty.

Finally, offside does not exist in disabled football.
