Quote from: Papy Oli on December 01, 2022, 01:55:54 AMDid you see that France lodged an appeal to FIFA to have their late equaliser reinstated ?! Even though the Griezmann offside was correct, the VAR Call was made after the final whistle and that is not allowed.
Quote from: Madiel on December 01, 2022, 02:07:48 AMNo, I didn't see that, I thought that the whistle had not actually been blown (the clock reaching the allotted time is not what ends the match). I don't have the recording any more to go check (though I could go stream the replay).Who the hell cares, anyway? You won the group.EDIT: I also find it very hard to believe that the referee actually would have blown the final whistle as well as having a VAR check. Those two actions seem fundamentally incompatible.
Quote from: Madiel on December 01, 2022, 02:44:41 AMWell no, that doesn't mean the referee had actually blown the FINAL whistle. That just means someone at a TV station believed it.There are a whole lot of different whistle blows involved. I forget which match it was that an offside was right near the halfway line and people wrongly believed the referee was pointing to the kickoff spot. Maybe Ecuador v Senegal?So even knowing that the referee blew his whistle is no kind of proof that he was intending to signal the end of the match.
Quote from: Madiel on November 30, 2022, 07:07:14 PMEdit: Commentators have pointed out that the Polish goalkeeper has saved penalties in 2 matches, and this in itself is enough to make the difference in their group.
Quote from: Madiel on November 30, 2022, 07:08:32 PMActually watching at 2am is beyond me. Which is why I take leave from work to start at a more sensible time.
Quote from: Papy Oli on December 01, 2022, 01:55:54 AMThat was dire but the 9 changes were necessary sadly. The number and calibre of the absentees through injury did show last night. There's really not much beyond the main 11. We were left with too many unexperienced players. Did you see that France lodged an appeal to FIFA to have their late equaliser reinstated ?! Even though the Griezmann offside was correct, the VAR Call was made after the final whistle and that is not allowed. Maybe there will be a little bit of karma thrown back at Tunisia after all for their supporters booing the French anthem last night
Quote from: (: premont :) on November 30, 2022, 08:31:01 PMThat's right.
Quote from: Madiel on December 01, 2022, 03:29:35 AMWell hang on, having VAR after a kick-off? That makes no sense either. Edit: this page is helpful. https://www.espn.com/soccer/fifa-world-cup/story/4820758/why-var-disallowed-griezmanns-goal-for-france-for-offside?platform=ampAnyway... I need some sleep before finding out in the morning whether Belgium survived.

Quote from: Jo498 on December 02, 2022, 01:12:29 AMBut Spain would have been out if Costa Rica had one and they had the lead, although only for a a short time! Except for the last 10 min or so when Germany led again it was very risky to count on Costa Rica not winning.
Quote from: Florestan on December 02, 2022, 12:56:54 AMI think Spain was actually okay with coming second and playing against Morocco instead of Croatia. It was obvious to me that they did not force a draw.Btw, what do you guys think? Ball out or not at Japan's second goal? I confess that both I and my wife saw it out in its entirety on several replays but on the other hand it's hard to believe that the VAR could have much such a blunder.
Quote from: Madiel on December 02, 2022, 02:07:08 AMthe whole of the ball has to be over the line
Quote from: Florestan on December 02, 2022, 03:22:16 AMYes, I knew that. I found this very helpful article with excellent pictures. The first one, right under the title, it's the one that made us believe the ball was out. The second one, posted by one Chris Williams on Twitter, clearly shows it was in, albeit by the smallest of margins. https://www.goal.com/en/news/explained-why-japan-second-goal-spain-controversially-allowed-var/blt78d3cdd7144ece65
