i guess 2004 wasnt far enough back for them, so they opted for 2000.


the future isnt looking too bright.

Two correct VAR decisions. Are Cameroon going to finish this or walk off?

Disgraceful behaviour throughout, they seriously need to learn the rules. Lucky not to have at least two players sent off too. Phil Neville was bang on with his comments after the match.

i caught up on the highlights of France-Brazil and VAR was big again, i'm not sure about ruling out that first goal.

some of the VAR rulings in this world cup are just head scratching and are really dragging half's way passed 50 minutes with long delays.maybe they need to follow the NFL with a 2 minute max or the ref's decision stands.

the USA penalties today where very slight contact,player going down a step or two after the "contact" but both resulted in spot kicks.

i guess there wasnt enough in the VAR to change the refs mind but both with beyond soft and in the realm of dives for me.

the 1st one there was a touch but she went down a few steps later but the 2nd one looked like nothing.

guess if there is no clear and obvious then it stays with the call but why did she take over 5 minutes looking,surely VAR needs to be quicker if there is nothing to really see something new that can change the call.

Japan outplayed the Dutch, but are robbed by the latest disgraceful penalty decision. Do refs just not have common sense, or are they not allowed to use it?

Think the only way to avoid handball now is to run around with your hands behind your back at all times, not sure what you can do to get out of the way when the ball is smashed at you from a yard away.

this is sadly going to be the new norm,this handball was harsh as the distance between the players was minimal but if the arm is out and it hits a hand/arm they are now going to just give the spot-kick.
