Hi everyone,

I have an odd moment, while I was managing team GB at olympic, my winger gareth bale got injured just one day before the final but strangely the game allowed me to call a replacement, so I called wilshere then played him from the bench for about 5 minutes and at the end of the day he got a medal.

Was it a bug or normal rule for the olympic tournament to be able to call a replacement just one day before the final?
yeah right it's been a week and no one reply :/
Sorry, Raypangea, but I really have no idea how that happened. I have really managed a side in the Olympics to know. Do you think it has something to do with the fact that the tournament took place in Great Britain itself, and for a replacement, travelling within a day was possible?
Thank you Akash. Yes it was a possibility & the tournament itself was held in Great Britain, but I still don't know if that's the official rule or just a bug? Because I'd never heard of that before in real life a team allowed to call a replacement in such late time.

I wonder, is football in olympic affiliated with FIFA? if not, maybe that's the explanation

Once again thank you Akash :)
