"Playing the advantage" in Association football (soccer) is where a foul has been committed but instead of the Referee awarding a free kick, play is allowed to continued if the Referee perceives this would be advantageous to the team which the foul was committed against. Having played the advantage the Referee can still "call back play" if the perceived advantaged does not materialise as he anticipated.
