    It was just classic 'the problem with Arsenal is they try and walk it into the net'.

    Strong incentive for either to win this, particularly France, so I hope they both give it a go for 90 and don't succumb to Tournament Football thinking, which must be tempting.

    Given how much Rabiot fucked the pass, you'd think he would have failed to score anyway.

    Good of France to give everyone a chance by constantly picking Rabiot.

    They're a bit piss and wind without Mbappé. Who's going to do the honourable thing and take on the role of Columbia 2014?

    Anthony Taylor is just guessing all these decisions when Thuram hurls himself to the ground at the first sniff of cannabis. UEFA/FIFA absolutely love him but Michael Oliver is far better in my eyes.

    I guess the comparison mostly occured to me by both being fast and always making the wrong final pass.

    France have not taken a single risk in that half. Deschamps delighted with 0-0 by the looks.

    I don't see how you beat this French side. They are just completely 100% solid and also have a gear to switch into.

    I really feel those ones are never given when they should be.

    Why are there absolutely no replays?

    Why doesn't he go and look at the replay?

    Once you're within 5 yards of a goalkeeper in that sort of situation they always deem you to be interfering unless you're obviously miles outside of the goal. He was between the goalkeeper and where the ball went in. He would never have saved it, but that's the bullshit we've had since the get go with VAR. That ITV woman will be along to explain shortly.

    That would absolutely never ever ever be disallowed prior to VAR. Taylor having spent the last few years straining to disallow goals in the PL is addicted to finding the man who might be interfering, in any reasonable football logic that is a goal. Ref should always give that and be overruled if there's a clear interference. Refs' lawbook probably says it's offside but it's such a horrible on-field call.

    Exactly that.

    Send the ref to the monitor and make him decide since it’s his job.

    No, Taylor (suspecting interference) ran over to the linesman and then he raised his flag (about an hour late) before it then went to VAR check.

    No, he only saw him as he watched the ball go past.
