Here is a great question for the final:
what was the first World Cup you remember and/or watched? Where were you?
He’s quality.United have been linked to Perisic for years, Inter refused to sell him last year. I have never been convinced, but he has had a good world cup
Awesome. I started in 1970 at the tender age of 6. My dad just signed me up for the next season on the youth level of one of our soccer clubs in Berlin (6-8 year olds) and I was really excited. Though some of the games were late at night when Germany played I was allowed to stay up late. I felt like a big boy among my parents and our neighbors who came over. Dam, chips and soda at midnight.I’m only 36 so for me the last one I remember was 1990 when I was 8. i was also in youth soccer here in North Lauderdale and plus Germany won, so memories stick with me from that time.
Hell I really only got into team sports watching starting around 1988 with the Dolphins, Canes and the Mets . . .plus eventually the Bulls with MJ. Switched from the Mets to the Marlins in 1993 and became a US soccer fan in 1994. Also the Florida Panthers around that time. After MJ left in 1998 I kind of waivered away from NBA but I became a Heat fan in 2003 when they drafted Wade as I enjoyed watching him in college.
I did enjoy Tennis when I was young, with Becker and Graf out there. Still love tennis and even golf, before and after Woods even. Also watched a lot of Olympics
I have seen much worse handballs not being called. The problem is that despite video it comes down to what the ref feels. And if you can review stuff like that you might as well review close fouls near the penalty box. I think in this WC nearly 50% of the goals came from standards like free kicks and corners.Croatia has clearly been the better side this half, and yet down 2-1 off a dive and a unfortunate handball.
****ing soccer sometimes man
