UEFA Euro 2012 Rules: Yellow Cards and Extra Time

Since it’s quarterfinal time (the elimination round of 8), I figured I’d just remind interested readers of some brief UEFA Euro 2012 rules:

1) Extra time:

“If the result stands as a draw at the end of normal playing time, extra time of two
periods of 15 minutes is played. If the two teams are still equal after extra time, the
winners are determined by kicks from the penalty mark”

In other words, no golden goal (sudden victory)

2) Yellow cards:

“Single cautions from matches in the final tournament expire on completion of the
quarter-finals, and are not carried forward to the semi-finals.”

So players with a yellow card will have that yellow card “wiped clean” after this round of games, and will no longer have to worry that a second yellow from a different game will earn them a 1 game suspension.
