“Playing in a Dangerous Manner” is one of the infractions listed in Law 12 that requires an Indirect Free Kick restart. This infraction is called when, in the opinion of the referee, a player plays in a dangerous manner, which is defined as any action that threatens injury to someone (including the player themselves) while trying to play the ball. It involves no physical contact between the players. Misconduct is warranted only if the action is made with an obvious risk of injury.
