With FIFA looking to improve the behaviour in the game, president Gianni Infantino believes that male players should look to women's footballers.
There is a stark contrast between both the men's and women's game in the way players behaviour on the field.
At the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Brazilian star Neymar made headlines for the wrong reasons when his theatrics saw him roll along the ground when minimal contact was made on him by an opposing player.
However, it's not new to the men's game, in fact, it's a regular occurrence.
So the game's lawmaking body, the International Football Association Board (IFAB), have been looking for ways to improve on-field behaviour at their annual meeting.
“The men’s game has developed incredibly, positively, but a few maybe side effects have unfortunately developed as well that we are fighting now,” Infantino said Saturday. “Let’s take the example of the women’s game.”
In women's football, it's rare to see a reaction like the ones Christiano Ronaldo, Leo Messi or Neymar make from current high-profile players like Sam Kerr, Marta or Alex Morgan.
“When it comes to behavior,” Infantino said, “if there’s something to learn from the women’s game ... it’s certainly this: This is much less time lost and wasted on simulations or on other situations we criticize in the men’s game. We are intervening now.”
Infantino is also supportive of introducing the VAR at the Women's World Cup in France this year, however, the decision will have to be ratified by the FIFA Council in a fortnight.
