Norwegian (Bokmal) term or phrase: forfall
Melding av forfall.
Spilleren har plikt til aa melde forfall til ansvarlig person i klubben naar han har lovlig forfall og ikke kan oppfylle forpliktelsene etter denne avtalen.

I understand "forfall" as "decline" - am I wrong? It doesn't seem to make much sense to me in the context of footballer injuries. I'm grateful for suggestions.

In this case it means that the player should notify the person in charge when he/she is going to be absent (when such an absence is justified)
