    The score pisses me off. I wanted to see a rivalry match. Iceland's victory over England was in vain.

    Whether or not France has been napping, it's not like Iceland hasn't had decent chances.

    How about you attack the post instead of the poster? Yep. Studs were nowhere near him, but by the way he went down you couldn't tell.

    The fact that that is called and is a yellow card is what's wrong with the sport. It's subjective and if you fall down and act like you're injured you get the call.

    Evra had a handball about 20 minutes ago, I probably would've given a penalty but I understand the non-call.

    Evra's hand ball. Terrible non-call.

    I responded to the post. But you don't understand it. Nothing surprising, you think you know the rules, but you don't.

    So what else can I say? Only a noob to the game can't see that was an obvious foul.

    No way should that have been called.

    You attacked the poster. You have the red white and blue blinders on.

    YOU DON'T KNOW THE BASIC RULES. So stop trying to pin that down on bias. You're the only one here trying to argue about that call, multiple posters (and non french ones) have told you it was a foul.

    So stop arguing about nothing, you were wrong, just like every single post you've made so far.

    So hand balls in the box are legal now? I guess Thierry Henry against Ireland revolutionized that change.

    Once again, you don't know the rules.

    Incredible.

    Nope, it's only been you.

    So was the Evra hand ball a bad call or not? You are flip flopping.

    Hand balls are illegal. Go ahead and try to prove me otherwise.

    Oh wait, you won't. You're just going to insult me more, because that's productive...

    It was unintentional ball to hand and his arm was in a natural position.

    Do yourself a favor and give it a rest.

    Having your arm parallel to your head is a natural position?

    Read the thread again. You've been told before by someone else.

    Evra was not a penalty according to the rules because it wasn't deliberate and his hand was in a natural position.
    With that said, some refs would have given a penalty.

    But in any case, if you think it was a textbook handball, it's a further proof you are talking about things you don't know about.

    Go ahead and point them out, I'm waiting.

    How is that position natural?

    You seem to have an issue with attacking the post, not the poster.

    You don't go studs first into a man. It's that simple. Think checking the numbers near the boards in hockey.

    Yes, lost in that ridiculous education for the noobs is that Iceland leaves this tournament.

    Well done Iceland, great showing !

    As for the Germany game I still expect us to lose. But the winner should take the title.

    Leg first, not studs. The studs were way past Giroud by the time contact is made.
