After using cheats to win.
They showed it here on tv several times during the break. Griezman goes down before he is even touched.
This is where the VAR can be very useful. The video ref needs to scream into the field ref's ear that it's a neymar and should be a yellow card.
IMO a simulation is a simulation. Shouldn't matter if its author wants to get a penalty, a free kick or an opponent sent off (by red card). It's a serious fail in the rules or how they're applied.
Honestly the finals are just showing what many people feared, VAR is a complete and utter failure.
The penalty was debatable but I'd say it was rightfully given, but, and that's the problem with VAR is that it is just so effing inconsistent. Sometimes VAR will completely omit themselves in blatantly obvious situations, but I'll interfere and change the ref's decisions at will or whenever the players run in droves complaining to the refs. It's happened throughout the world cup and I hope FIFA recognizes the mistake, unless it's deliberate, corruption and all that.
Either put VAR as a superior instance to the ref and have them quickly check every call(specially those near the last thirds of the field) during the game non-stop or drop it altogether. There's an old adage that dictates that if you have two leaders you actually have none, this is pretty much the case here.
That's a one way trip to the gulag!
WTF WAS THAT
Tbh I'd say that was a penalty. There's a movement towards the ball. It's a bit harsh because it looks instinctive rather than intentional but the ball has travelled 30 meters. He should have been more aware.
I know he's on a yellow card, but why take Kante off? France aren't chasing the game, they're leading...
According to the stats France is beinmg dominated by Croatia!
I'm guessing they're going to park le bus.
Kante is a defensive midfielder. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Nzonzi a striker?
Watching the game tells you that! Croatia have been by far the better team. France very lucky to be leading.
A deserved French goal!
What a hold up !
But i like it...
Well it's 3-1 and for once, there's nothing to complain about that.
That defense was just............. wat
Brilliant from Pogba!!!!
So happy right now, because you know who he plays for!
Great pass by Pogba to release Mbappe and a good finish.
anti football wins again! I dislike france for having all that talent and still playing reactive football.
I agree. The rules currently don't cover it though. Presumably FIFA are (rightfully) worried about too many stoppages. Do we really want VAR getting involved for incidents that happen on the halfway line in case someone scores as a result. Currently VAR takes too long.
That's game over.
MBAPPE HOLY ****
It's nice to see a World Cup final be a goalfest for once. I can't remember one having more than 2 goals in it in my life.
Wtf is going on with Subasic?!
He becomes the first teenager to score in World Cup final since Pele back in 1958.
Has Lloris just lost the Golden Glove with that Catastrophic error?
