Potter, a headmaster of Home Farm School, a private primary school in Essex, England, announced that, with the football boom rising during the World Cup, more and more students imitate the overacting behaviors of football stars such as Neymar when they are playing fouls. Some of them would even quarrel.

Therefore, he decided to ban the students from playing football in the school for a week. Porter underlined that he does not oppose football, but only hopes students can own sportsmanship. In addition, their PE teacher will also develop a new "football criterion" to help students follow the rules and enjoy fair games.
