Didn't see it, but these frog-eating French diving DOGS did not deserve to win 2-1. Yet again, Australia is the victim of horrific umpiring.

You don't deserve to win if your inhabitants use the term umpiring.

Also, it was a clear penalty.

The Argentinian defense will be fun to watch throughout the tournament.

I have Germany beating Brazil for $140.

Let’s hope our World Cup similarities don’t go the way of our Stanley Cup similarities.

i'm really hoping that if my pool picks end up tanking, that an african, asian, or south american team not named brazil or argentina gets hot and plays until the last weekend in this tournament.

Or North American 🤷🏻*♂️ basically, it would be cool to see a team not European or Brazil/Argentina.

I love how in this sport a “clear penalty” is when a player dives after a touch that wouldn’t have disturbed a butterfly. And everyone’s just okay with it.

Absolutely cracking tournament so far best month of sport one could wish for.

Iceland were monumental last night, it really is a golden generation of sorts.
Peru unlucky against Denmark. Both teams impressed.

All the Messi fanboys having a teary. Hope Argentina get eliminated. I think Croatia will defeat them.

I'm knackered, how I'd love a World Cup in my own timezone.

So, clearly FIFA is cracking down on the video because, yeah, it’s easy to criticize that call. Because it’s weak.

However, one thing is clear. It’s a slide tackle from behind. Which, in order to be clean, there needs to be 0 contact. Rough contact from behind... red card. Any clear takedown is a red card from behind. That’s what they call a “dangerous play” even if the result isn’t an injury or even a standard foul. The intention is to discourage slide tackles from behind.

In this particular case, the Aussie defender clearly takes a slide tackle from behind, gets ball, and the offender makes contact.

It’s a foul for sure. And it’s an unfortunate one because it’s in the box. Pretty much the shittiest combination of rules. Slide tackle from behind, even though he got ball first, in the box. Penalty kick. Flaws of the game revealed.
