    How? Primary contact of the ball, only contact between the two was leg to leg with Giroud rolling around afterwards.

    You can't make a dangerous tackle leading with the foot.

    Great save Lloris !

    I probably would've given a penalty there, but I understand the non-call.

    Some people seem to think that it's ok to break a guys leg as long as you get the ball.

    The French attempt at the Icelandic chant is really bad.

    Well, yes but again, perspective. Portugal are an abomination that set football back 50 years whenever they step on the pitch. And England is England.:laugh:

    But France is full value for the win today they are impressive.

    Koscielny out to avoid a second yellow.

    So because it looks dangerous it's a foul? His studs didn't catch him. It's a terrible call.

    I wasn't aware Giroud's leg was broken. It's amazing he scored a goal after that traumatic event.

    Apparently, you have no idea of the rules of football.
    If a gesture is dangerous, it's a foul, whether the opponent is touched or not.

    Getting a piece of the ball shouldn't automatically void the play of a foul.

    That gesture wasn't dangerous. It might have looked dangerous in high speed but it wasn't dangerous. And he got a yellow for nothing. Giroud sold it.

    I don't know how you can defend these calls. Evra got away with a handball almost as blatant as Boateng's.

    And it doesn't, fortunately. Studs first is always dangerous.

    He got all of the ball.

    Just because there's contact doesn't mean it's a foul. Giroud rolling around on the ground in anguish is what got the call.

    Please, learn a thing or two about the sport before commenting.
    His gesture was dangerous, it was an obvious FK. Not a card, simply a well deserved FK. You disputing that is ridiculous.

    As for Evra, I never defended the call, so please stop making up lies. I didn't comment on it, except for "Evra almost cost us another penalty".
    And with that said, it was not comparable to Boateng.

    How was it dangerous? His studs were nowhere near Giroud.

    Oh you're a France fan. That makes sense.

    His studs were between Giroud's legs. That's "nowhere near"?

    We always get those noobs who try to teach us lessons at every major tournament and then crawl back under their rock afterwards.
    Non french people have told you about the foul. Get over it, you're wrong.

    If they called that handball correctly this would be interesting.
