Ugly advert for the game, refs have a thankless task, could very easily have ended up a complete farce.

If BBC is to be believed 24m watched the penalties.

Toothless FIFA is at the root of it all.

The error on the head butt was down to a spineless decision by the VAR official, had the referee been invited to see the incident I'm pretty sure he would have red carded.

The shameful display by the Columbians trying to intimidate the referee should have been at least another sending off, how they get away with it is criminal but it's a Taxi home for Columbia so all is good.

Funnily enough the Columbian press is trashing the referee for his poor performance, how ironic is that given had he been better half of them would have left the pitch.

Seems simple to me - the captain should be the only person allowed to approach the referee (the referee can initiate a conversation with an offending player of course) and any other player gets a yellow card if he interferes.

I totally agree John that the referee clearly had a very difficult job, it's just that my feeling was he could have helped himself by being a little more asertive at points and imposing his authority a bit? It might have calmed things down - who knows.

Rugby, yellow card, cool yer heels for 10 minutes, then all is forgiven. Simples. Dissent for a yellow, becomes red, simples. Dissent for a free kick, 10 meters nearer your goal, simples.

By the way, he is addressed as 'sir', as you agree with him.

We were out yesterday & didn't get home until the match was well underway but anticipating this Mrs Pat had set the PVR to record the entire programme. We were able to watch in time shift mode.& by zipping through the 1/2 time ads, studio chat etc was able to catch up to within 15 - 20 mins of real time.
Then about 2 mins before the end of extra time near disaster - the **** recording ended sad. I realised that it would probably have gone to penalties as I franticaly switch over to direct TV. - got it just in time to see an England player running up to take his penalty - it was Eric Dier scoring the winner !!! teeth 2

So I missed the rest of the shoot out except the ones that didn't score when the were shown again just before the interviews etc - didn't bother to watch or record the shoot out on MOTD.

How was the game reported in Columbia?

Not seen or heard their side of events.

(No I'm not, and do not condone the behaviours displayed but it is always interesting to try and see the perspective of 'the other side'.

They said England are a disgrace and we cheated them from certain victory, Diego Maradona agrees.

I've stopped buying their papers now, hurt my feelings.crying 2

I understand that their press was up in arms against the "English speaking" referee's "bias" towards England - little if any mention of the head butting let off of course...

You'll be watching a sport well known for drug enhanced cheats instead then? I suppose there's a few moments of excitement in a sprint finish but I can think of little more boring than watching a bunch of Lycra clad sweaty herberts cycling past me for a few seconds in a blur of colour - but each to their own...

I enjoy the TDF, one of the highlights of the sporting year.

Competition brings the best n the worst out in people, we get plenty threads on here that get competitive n a bit passionate. which mode, lecky or I.C, petrol or glow, which TX, which engine, BMFA, who's opinion is the truth, refs/mods have to get involved at times as well, seen a few yellow cards issued, and sadly some who'll end up with a red one.

Be millions watching both Ernie.

In another quandary, already written off visit to Yeovilton Air Day on Saturday.

Just found out my local community centre has a double double booking for a 70th and childrens party on Saturday so will not be able to show the game in the main hall with big screen.

After years of heartache and watching all previous tournament games in public venues, for this one all games watched at home but the superstitious part of me thinks will I curse it by changing now.

Ahhhhhh, but my club had its new benches vandalised last weekend. So my president (this is France) having sorted out repairs, has decreed a deweeding event of the landing area, in contempt of the anti social louts, (edited wording), and as a show of unity, and solidarity.

At 1430 hrs, CET. Bring a hoe. Being green, don't do neonicotinoids. 20 Km from home. You do the maths. Mutter, mutter. Fed up.
