    We aren't scoring any more goals without Forsberg.

    Sweden's diving today is disgusting. I always liked them, but after the last two games I'm officially against them.

    Subbing off Forsberg seems silly - I get wanting to bolster your defense for the last ten, but they're not creating in extra time without him.

    A lot less options without him. Never liked the hedgehog tactic.

    It's pathetic, but at least they're not faking injury. FIFA wants their players to dive or don't care, there's no other way around it. And the players gain benefits from never being penalized and can always hope for a freekick/ penalty.

    They wouldn't create anything in extra time with him anyways.

    Swedens only hope always was to prey for a fluke goal and hold on or go to penalties.

    Forsberg helped them get their fluke now they just have to pray they can hold on. And with the way Switzerland is giving the game away it looks like they will.

    My initial impression of that is that he milked that.

    And I'm right. The foul is outside of the box and the diving happened inside the box.

    Well, it's irrelevant anyway.

    By rule, that's a red card.
