UEFA Nations League/Euro 2020 Qualification


#41

That was a terrible night for the young lads. The referee was an absolute disgrace. Poor young lad must be distraught…


#42

I wonder were the players and goalkeepers, especially, addressed on this before the shoot-out. I think I read somewhere that there is a new FIFA/UEFA directive to clamp down on goalkeepers moving off their line before penalty kicks being taken.


#43

The yellow card rule was brought in last year.


#44

And there’s been plenty of penos with movement from the goalie since then and not once did I ever see the keeper get booked


#45

I agree, thats why I said earlier that technically the ref was right, but the problem lies in the fact that more times than not refs dont call for a retake, but once he did he had no choice but to give the card


#46

But I think I heard that there is a new push from FIFA to introduce this rigorously.


#47

What in the name of jaysus is Shay wearing


#48

The Netherlands knocked England out last night in the semi-final - again in a penalty shoot-out.


#49

Good to see consistency…

And I’m not talking about England being knocked out on penos :wink:


#50

And the Netherlands win the final, on penalties. X
