World Cup
« on: June 25, 2018, 00:10:39 AM »
 ;D here we go again! Let's hope Gareth Southgate's young team does well.  More like a wrestling match at times in the box!!  The Refs  and VAR  need to step up a bit!!  I will take  6 goals....don't care what side it was against!!  :D [app]  ....... and well done to Hamilton for winning the French F1 [app]

I watched the game against Colombia last night and what a farce that was. It should not have gone to extra time and penalty's as England should have won it in the first half - just need to stop playing Sterling...

I can't believe the Colombians finished the game with all their players on the pitch. They were a disgrace to football. Including the coach that elbowed Stirling as he ran off at half time! The referee was far too lenient with them.

I would like to see the Colombian FA (if there is such an organisation) heavily fined and the national team banned from tournaments for at least 10 years. The sort of behaviour we saw last night needs to be stamped out.

Cheating and poor sportsmanship seems rife in South American football. Their behaviour was shocking, how on earth all their players remained on the pitch is a complete mystery. I would like to see FIFA take some action over the behaviour of the coach. Had they won it would have been a complete farce.

i don't know how old you are but I remember the Brazilian football of the late 60's and early 70's was fantastic. Every kid I knew had a yellow Brazil football shirt!

But I agree with you in that the modern football played by South Americans is annoying because you know they don't need to do it.

Anyway we're out now. A good first half but outclassed in the second half and extra time. Croatia deserved the win and wish them well in the final. A good World Cup though for the England team to consolidate and develop

Agreed absolutely!  Let's hope they put it over the French.

On South American teams, remember the Argentinians in 1966?  The dirtiest team ever - even tried to attack the England players in their dressing-room after the game.
