    UEFA is set to take tougher measures to deal with the growing problem of simulation by players. HERE

    I hope they will not automatically disqualify Italy and Brazil

    The first step is to stop calling it "simulation" and start calling it what it is "faking a foul".

    BTW, Italy is probably the only one in danger since this article was posted by UEFA.

    Why would you not use the words that appear in the Laws of the Game? Besides, "simulating action" (the words in L12 D5) involves more than just faking fouls. The foul might be real; the simulation might be to embellish it to make it look like the opponent deserved a card.
