Not a great game from the bits I saw, but solid. With the upsets so far, solid is good enough. Against Serbia, they better don't miss chances like the Seferovic one.

Re: World Cup 2022 - Football only, no politics

Narration in Argentinian of Spain - Costa Rica game from yesterday. 1 penalty and 4 mistakes from defense, but 2 of the goals where perfect centers and the attacker kicks the ball from uncomfortable positions and odd angles...and the ball ends up in the net. That's real danger

South-Korea has set the record of players with the same name.

Re: World Cup 2022 - Football only, no politics

No stats but I have the impression that a a lot of goals have been cancelled due to offside rule. Is it because of the VAR?

You could be right. VARs have/will certainly reduce the incidence of referee bias.

Did you watch the game? Goalie from Saudi Arabia hit one of his defenses while jumping for the ball. The defense did not fake anything, he was just unconscious for a while and taken out from the field on a stretcher. Hope the guy spends the night in the hospital under close monitoring.

I did see , and there were only 2 minutes of added time left when the injury occurred but when play restarted there were nearly another 6 played?

Re: World Cup 2022 - Football only, no politics

Well another roller coaster day.

Wales unravelled by laissez-faire opponents.

England stymied by resolute tactics

After 75” it seemed both weren’t reluctant to not going for it.

Re: World Cup 2022 - Football only, no politics

Great game, intense, open, feels like beyond group stage. My pre-tournament hope that Argentina can go deep slowly comes up from the basement again.

That game was one hot mess … Argentina will be out the second they have to play a contender like France or Spain.

France looked quite shaky the other day defensively.

Haven't seen any of it. De Breuyne apparently gave an interview recently saying "no way we can win the cup, we are way too old". Well.

Re: World Cup 2022 - Football only, no politics

Good game again now. Tense. Germany are getting closer. Could break either way any time. The Spanish goalie looks like a big liability.
