You dont know for a new "rule"?

What new rule? Letting England a lenient way?

I hope your country beats Russia and England though. Must be fun for you.

Good one.Hate with no reason will eat you.

This one:
Pierluigi Collina, the chairman of Fifa’s referees committee, said the problems with lengthy delays during trials had been ironed out. The Italian also said assistant referees had been advised to keep their flag down for tight offside calls and to leave it to VAR to decide.

“If you see some assistant referee not raising the flag, it’s not because he’s making mistakes,” Collina said. “It’s because he’s respected the instruction to keep the flag down. They were told to keep the flag down when there is a tight offside incident and there could be a very promising attack or a goal-scoring opportunity because, if the assistant referee raises the flag, then everything is finished.”
How can anybody watch WC and don't know for this?I dont get it.

Yeah,it not tight in that situation (and few more on the tournament but this is a point...)

The quote said if it is a tight offside.

It was not a tight offside.

So, I don't see the point of arguing because the rule is nullified in this case. The call was right at the wrong time which could risk Sweden another goal if England had scored. Yes, there is VAR but in many occasions referees have refused to review VAR as well.

Yeah,tight or not it was offside.

I know it was not tight here but we already see in other games that they are waiting for call.Especially after that one mistake from the beginning of WC when referee bring flag up with no reason (no offside).

You are really into this referees cheer for England things.If Sterling scores VAR would have disallowed goal.I don't see any problems here.

Ranocchia is one of factor England there..

If Ranocchia doesn't come to Hull, Maguire can't be England starting CB , and England defense not good like now.

Idk why but England are really unlikable, especially with this 'coming home' shit. They remind me of Liverpool.

Well...We did invent the sport.

Are you Chinese by any chance?
All the British did was write a rule book. We're thankful for that rule book.
They didn't invent kicking a round object, they didn't invent round objects.
They actually did invent a non-round object, completely distorted an ancient Greco-Roman sport with the same playing style and ended up calling it rugby FOOTBALL... So you can have that, and your silly soccer-football debate with the rest of the Anglosphere :lol:

Oh am sure they were cave men kicking other people's heads around too. Fact is, we invented football to what it is today.

No, you didn't invent shit. Choose your words carefully. You developed it, yes. You confined an abstract version into a modern rulebook. But no, you didn't invent the sport. Variations of it were around before the English themselves were...invented.

Ah yes, arguing over semantics on a football forum on a Saturday night in the summer. Fun stuff, lads.

We invented football like we did most things. That's why we are all speaking English on this forum. It's coming home and there's nothing you can do about it.
