Brutal turnover out of the back set up that chance. Great finish. 

Spain’s center backs really hurt them. I understand Rodri is a CDM playing out of position, but that’s no excuse for the all the turnovers he committed in the second half. If anything it makes his shitty passing even less excusable.

Belgium v Morocco is awful so far.  Belgium really not showing the quality today.

Belgium didn’t show their quality vs Canada, they just snuck out with 3 points. Belgium’s decline is full speed ahead…

NOT: Starting now. or Coming after the 2024 Euros.

The HMFIC of Morocco will give each player a pack of Camels and a bag of dates. 

A friend since childhood was offered 1,000 camels (🐪 x 1,000) for his wife on their honeymoon when they were in Morocco. (2000 A.D.)

At the time she looked like a younger Shania Twain without surgical enhancements, he dad was reportedly worth $125M (probably double that now) and the wife only had one sibling, and they hadn’t had kids yet and he wanted to combine genes with her (She was very attractive and they met at Harvard Law, meaning the smarts were there too.), so  he declined the offer.

But camels 🐪 🐫 as currency is (was?) definitely a thing in Morocco. 🇲🇦

Lalas have jaundice?

Lalas is jaundice personified.

SIDE NOTE: From the podcasts I’ve listened to where he has been a guest (definitely Max Bretos and maybe others), one could infer that Lalas likes to drink a bit.

Lucky on the [Rudiger goal] offsides as Spain defense was complete shit on that set piece.

Lucky that Spain’s defenders practice holding up a bit so that the opposing players are offsides on set pieces and counterattacks. 

Saudi Arabia was lucky that they weren’t down 3-0 to 4-0 at halftime after they smartly played their high line a little tighter than other teams, like they practice it, and they smartly did something that Argentina didn’t adjust to.

The number of offsides goals that Spain & FC Barcelona scored between 2008 and 2013 probably numbers in the “several dozen” to “over 50” range because there was no VAR. Now that there’s VAR, defenses can be smart and not get screwed. By lazy and/or crooked refs.

Did the comments from Canada head coach John Herdman, about how his players were going to "f--- Croatia," serve to fire up the Croatians ahead of this critical game?

"I want to thank Canada's coach for the motivation," Kramaric said shortly after scoring two goals in Croatia's 4-1 rout over Canada on Sunday, sending the North American team crashing out of the World Cup.

"We demonstrated who f---ed whom," he added.

Excellent grammar! 

It pleases me to see English as a Foreign Language users getting the "who"/"whom" usage spot on rather than learning their English from their British or American teammates who don't exactly nail the grammar at the club level.
