Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
Just watched France v Australia.
Poor slow game. France the supposed favourites were held in check by a stron Aussie defence and an occasional foray into the French penalty area.
France looked tired and clumsy with many misplaced passes.
Some controversial decisions. France were awarded a penalty which was disputed. So they introduced the VAR service from which the Referee awarded a goal which in my view was wrong. Soon after Var again was difficult to prove ball fully over the line. Goal again awarded.
No such problems when French defender crazily punched the ball in the penalty area.
France ran out very lucky winners 2-1. They will have to improve if they want to qualify for later rounds.
