    Thanks All. Hooray me for winning the coinflip on the penalty shootout. Thanks especially to Jejima for running this thing. And of course: Congrats to JOPUTOSU and team Georgia

    Yeah, but he's not entitled to do so per se. Dumfries is both allowed to occupy space and to make an attempt at the ball. (And that's setting aside the potential Handball by Saka in the run-up, which by current rulings seems to be a foul?)

    Agree. It's bad training on the part of the refs: feels like they don't watch enough video, to me. Even standards of officiating are necessary. To me, the big issue is that card #1 has basically no consequences, and card #2 is very close to "your team can't score". I think a sin-bin system like rugby, ice hockey and assorted other sports use for the first yellow would improve matters substantially. Make defenders think twice about spending their one yellow card on a professional foul.

    Indeed. Which is why he added a bunch of time to stoppage time and didn't card the guy. It also would cause a longer stoppage than just letting him waste time (new shirt, gloves, the whole bit). But that's the corner you put yourself in as a ref!

    Was a classic refereeing mistake: pulling the trigger fast on people's first yellows, and then not following through when they do more of the same. Happens a lot, unfortunately, and leads to bad blood. (Another example from this game: Simon, the spanish goalie, got carded for timewasting. Later in the game, he managed to take about 70s to take a goal kick. What do?)

    I am impressed that the chants in the France - Portugal game have been basically continuous for two full hours.

    Same in dutch: the "ste"/"stel" distinction in (high) german fuses together (into "ste"), which evolves into english "th"; the largest unique fraction is still "kwartaal". I think some of the aversion to "eighthfinals" is that long consonant cluster, so Ro16.

    Not that anyone uses. Even in the NCAA tournament they use "first round" instead of the binary, or "round of 64"...

    Something that I hadn't realised until now: the dutch actually use 'achtste finale'. In english it's always 'round of sixteen' on official media.

    It'd be pretty easy to set up a burner gmail or hotmail account (or whatever) just to run bench. I have a few for random purposes like that, and setting up forwarding or switching between gmail accounts is surpringly easy.

    Who do I send my chain to for the RO16? (Esp. considering that Jejima is my opponent...)

    I agree with the tiebreak in group F, assuming the results are correct. A round-robin of 2-0 games leaves no way to separate without going to the tiebreaks that include other teams.

    Me neither. The replays looked like several handballs by the turks, frankly.
