Well, the Qatari goalkeeper fucked up pretty quickly.

 

VAR. Of course, VAR.

20 minutes in, the pressure certainly seems to be impacting the hosts.

Fox halftime crew re: offsides:
"Tie goes to the runner."
Lalas: "You can't be a little pregnant." Awkward silence followed by acknowledging the baseball term shouldn't apply here.
I laughed but Sheeesh.

It's dumb. Soccer players are in constant motion. If you freeze frame at a given microsecond, one body part is bound to move. What advantage does the attacker get by having half his leg in front? A half second later, that leg is behind.

 

Just rewrite the rule that there needs to be a gap between attacker and defender for it to be offside. You know, "leave room for the holy spirit".

Ecuador dominated despite its MLS players and a bunch of players were not even good in MLS. So weird!

Qatar is not very good to begin with. Add the fact they werent up to the moment, and it equaled a very poor performance

(Not that I disagree with your underlying point)

I'm not saying that the fox broadcast needs to provide a caveat about the conditions here every 5 minutes, but wow have they went all in on the propaganda train. Money talks.

If you scan YouTube looking for Bradley Wright-Phillips, youll find numerous goal compilations, a few interviews and, eventually, an excerpt from the grime mixtape series Lord of the Mics.

John Strong said "you have to feel bad for Qatar" about 85 minutes in.

The fuck I do. I hope they have a GD of -15 and are humiliated on their way out of the tournament.

Can both Klimala and Barlow be naturalized by Qatar? Their skills matchup perfectly with the Qatari attack.
