What was the reaction when Drier went up to take the last penalty shot over Vardy?

It's possible, but it wouldn't be any fun for me.;)

No one was speaking. You could hear a pin drop in a bar of 500 people.

Not that this is WC specific, but is anybody buying the Ronaldo to Juve rumors? If true that would trigger some massive transfer spending by the big boys.

The old lady would immediately become one of the top 5 club teams in the world if that happens.

Didn’t think that was a PEN at all but rooting for England so I’ll take it. Columbia are a bunch of lunatic babies. Hope they get demolished in the 2nd half.


I wasn't even talking about the penalty though the defender did ride him like Secretariat. But Barrios head butted Henderson. Yes Henderson flopped but a head butt is a red no matter how you slice it.

I think there was universal agreement it was a penalty but the way I saw it, Kane initiated the contact and then began to fall down. At that point the Colombian defender was riding him to the ground.

Btw I noticed a report that while the Columbians were whining like babies in protest of the Pen one of their players was behind the huddle digging his boot into the spot and scuffed it entirely. They are dirty AF I have little respect for anyone on that team.

Kane definitely initiated contact. And I'm an Arsenal fan so no love for Kane. But its never the first one who initiates its always the retaliation as you know.

Yeah there are videos of #17 digging a hole at the spot.

This comes with a ton of bias but for my money Sokratis is the best centreback in the world. Good bit of business from the Gunners on that one.
