The AR had his flag up on the 2nd Japanese goal which was the call on the field and the VAR ruled it inconclusive. How does the goal stand if the VAR rules it inconclusive?

Well on the post game show heard somebody say inconclusive but the pictures are fairly conclusive. So who knows what was really ruled with VAR. Does anyone know what the ref actually ruled and not what they are saying in the post game show.

So Germany saves Spain, and Spain…does not reciprocate. 

The Spanish people still aren’t over the Germany backing Franco. ESPECIALLY all of the Catalans on the team and the Asturian-born manager, who is a former FC Barcelona star & club manager.

There would seem to be a lot of anti-German/Bayern blood 🩸 in the Spanish camp.

The battle for Ceuta and Mellila? If Morocco wins they get them back


Get them “back”?

How long do you think that Morocco has been an independent country?

That second Japan goal was pure bullshit though. Clearly no part of that ball was still touching the line. If you're going to have VAR don't have complete retard officials who can still fuck it up

Been watching WC since 1982 but don’t know all the rules.  I guess from your response they don’t do appeals.

Nearly the entire 2nd half was played after that goal was counted. (51’ goal scored… goal awarded by 53’ or 54’) 

Over 40 minutes of play and substitutions that may have gone a different way if that goal had NOT been counted. There is no way that they can change it at this point.

You can clearly see that the top of the ball ️ is dented in from the player kicking the ball.

And that's out. 

Any sport where that isn't out of bounds when the entire ball is over the line needs to adjust it's rules because they're stupid. 

That does need to happen though. With VAR now they need to make rules more clear so the reviews can work properly for things like offsides and this. Having dudes called offsides because only their arm is in an offsides position (like Croatia had today) when the arm can't even be used in the sport anyway is just beyond stupid. 

Of course with the way world soccer works they'll go the opposite route and fuck it all up more.

Get ready to plotz!

That wasn’t offsides due to the ARM being in an offsides position. That was due to the shoulder joint being in an offside position. 

The arm didn’t matter, because you can’t legally score with the arm.

Yes but you see the thing is defenses play to the rule in place and if they are disciplined enough they are looking to keep the player offside by any means possible. If the rule was changed then defenses would be bitching about a toe being onside. I love this new technology for offside rule. Either way one side is going to bitch. People don't understand that the offside rule is a cat and mouse game and defenses have to stay disciplined and strikers have to get the start going at just the right time.

ps. I guess a compromise with this technology could be the strikers neck line is in an offside position so that their line of sight is what is being used to stay onside.

Hermanator must be a fucking lawyer …

Not sure.  Considering no facts or laws are on his side, he should be banging the table - but its almost like he is arguing facts.

Why would we trust goal line technology to tell us if a ball is scored and not if the ball crosses the same line outside some posts?

It doesn’t have to touch the line. The ball is considered in so long there is ball over the line. And there is this thing called perspective.
