In the early 1990s, the introduction of the new “FIA” series of World Cup matches prompted a need for updated equipment, and that is exactly what the FIFA 19 Injector was designed to offer. Up until this point, in the previous games the World Cup winners had the option of either using their own “Injector” or having the services of an outside provider. Both options proved to be problematic, as many times the team would use an inferior type of injector which caused slow speeds, frequent failures, and even parts damage. It also tended to be difficult to handle and repair. The introduction of the “FIA” series changed everything.
The new system was developed by a leading engineering company based in Germany. This company’s main goal was to ensure that the World Cup was played at its optimum with the least amount of interruptions due to problems with the system. An injection system that could be used by any team, from any country, was essential if the competition was to be fair and equitable. The first piece of equipment was the “Wick”. This cleverly designed spring, which could be wound up at the start of a game and subsequently, after stoppages, be wound back into the system.
The next innovation was the “Airbrush”. This was a clever device which injected air into the system on the initial kick. As the air was forced through the air vents at the front of the unit, it pushed the air back into the air chamber in the rear of the unit. This ensured that any air that had been forced out of the system did not enter the other players’ body. A further benefit to this system was that the team no longer had to wait for the introduction of the injection air into the system.
The introduction of the “Injector” set a new benchmark in the game. After all, the previous system had relied on the use of manual wicks. As the injection method meant that the air could be injected at any stage in the game, it became vital to have a system that could do this quickly and effectively. The injection method allowed this to happen.
The introduction of goalposts was another major change. In previous years teams had been penalised for attempting to win the game through extra-time. The introduction of goalposts made it impossible for a team to win a match through extra-time. It became necessary to introduce penalty kicks to try to keep the game level. This was an improvement on the way that matches were frequently won and lost through extra-time.
The introduction of regulation shorts brought major changes to the game. These shorts came with a regulation height of 14 inches. The lower the shorts, the lower the leg muscles had to be. The lower legs of players became renowned for their explosive power. The rules allowed teams to experiment with various styles of play, so that matches could become more exciting.
When FIFA began operation in European tournaments in Europe and Asia, the association governing the sport went through major changes. One of the major changes was the introduction of three points for winning a game. The aim was to give teams a greater incentive to play well and to challenge for a win. The change also enabled the introduction of four corners per side. The corners system allowed two teams to form three lines of five while the fourth team lined up in their usual formation. It was the first step towards creating a true rivalry in the sport.
The introduction of television cameras to the games helped make the game more watchable. This enabled fans to follow the progress of the game, which added to the excitement of the match. When fans are able to follow the game more closely, it helps to provide them with a greater understanding of the game. As modern technology continues to improve and to influence the rules of the game, football will continue to grow in popularity.
