Welp, is it worse to not go through on fair play? or by getting countered after blowing 12 chances in a row?

Wait... I guess that goal didn't really matter because the goals scored would come into play before fair play.

I was hoping that Poland would have suddenly gotten a few more yellows so that they were tied there. I've never seen a world cup decision go down to an actual coin toss.

I like Donovan commentating. Dempsey is a dork. Lalas is.... lalas.

Yeah, that whole Argentina/Poland and Mexico/Saudi Arabia simultaneous situation was wild.

Lukaku has missed three fuckin sitters in this second half. Belgium going home. Cannot believe they suck as bad as they do with the talent they have. As much as I Berhalter ball annoys me, we never play as uninspired as Belgium has this cup.

xG for Lukaku was 1.87

People will make excuses that he is rusty, if that is the case than why play him? The man is a headcase and its embarassing that Chelsea spent so much money on him. The Belgian golden generation is dead only members that should remain is probably de Bruyne and Courtois.

2 African nations through and possible that 2 more could make it after none made it through last WC. Big accomplishment

Disappointed to not see Shaqiri throw the double headed eagle up against Serbia again after his goal. Satisfied with Xhaka grabbing his nuts at their bench and nearly starting a riot. And them being knocked out.

Brazil just Berhaltered all over themselves. Control most of the game, controlled all of the first half of overtime then scored and tried to play defense.

Grant Wahl, US soccer reporter, is dead in Qatar due to very likely unnatural circumstances, per Twitter.

A little early to speculate of cause of death imo



https://www.espn.com/espn/story/_/id/35221443/american-soccer-journalist-grant-wahl-dies-48-qatar

Quote :
"He wrote Monday that he had visited a hospital while in Qatar.

"My body finally broke down on me. Three weeks of little sleep, high stress and lots of work can do that to you,'' Wahl wrote. "What had been a cold over the last 10 days turned into something more severe on the night of the USA-Netherlands game, and I could feel my upper chest take on a new level of pressure and discomfort. I didn't have Covid (I test regularly here), but I went into the medical clinic at the main media center today, and they said I probably have bronchitis. They gave me a course of antibiotics and some heavy-duty cough syrup, and I'm already feeling a bit better just a few hours later. But still: No bueno.''"

Yeah I'm not saying he didn't get murdered, but Twitter is doing what Twitter is absolutely the best/worst at, which is blindly promoting a conspiracy theory

Does someone know: For the fans in the stadium, how do they decide who can bring the drums/trumpets/etc? Not just anyone can bring an instrument in there, can they?

I believe you have to be in the offiicial supporters club for your nation ie American Outlaws, which I believe have group tickets to be able to get certain musical instruments in. However Vuvuzela's are banned

Grant Wahl died of an aortic aneurysm the same thing that killed Einstein and Lucille Ball.

Love that our society has devolved so much that some people were blaming the Qatari's and some were blaming the Vax.

They were both in their 70s when they died. Grant Wahl dying as a (seemingly) healthy man in his 40s is definitely going to invite speculation--particularly when he was regularly speaking out against the oppressive Qatari government.
