So I just learnt that Uefa is trialling a change in how the kicks from the mark are staged. This will happen at the current Womens U17 championships that are being played in Europe. Here is a report about it - http://bbc.in/2pHbs6f ABBA is how teams A and B will take the kicks. The reasoning is that currently the team kicking second has to play catch-up. No more. It borrowed the strategy that tennis uses.
