    Because he whistled the foul. I don't remember when one gave a foul and the free kick doesn't happen.

    Sweden eliminated Italy, Holland, Germany.

    Amazing run led by two Krasnodar beasts

    If you think this was a flopping game, you haven't watched many games this tournament. This was child's play diving. Watch Neymar, Pepe, Suarez or Ronaldo for a game and behold the masters of diving, while they scream like their leg is gone.
    Yup. You have to watch the teams Sweden surpassed to get where they are. It's ugly as hell, but they deserve to be where they are.

    Well that's Netherlands and Italy in the qualifiers, won the group over Germany and Mexico, and now beat Switzerland. At some point, you should start wondering if the team is actually trash, or just very very hard to beat with some opportunistic scoring?

    That was my read too.

    ?????? I've watched for years. And it's Soccer. :)

    Defending diving? Really? That's what we've come too?

    I hate my local MLS team because of Giovinco. It's embarrassing.

    Yes, no idea what the heck that was. Rojo fouled Mbappe outside the box and then inside the box a second time for good measure.

    Opportunistic is exactly how I would describe this Sweden team. They're not fancy, and I wouldn't favor them against any of the teams remaining (including Russia) but they are a very opportunistic team that plays a solid enough game to give them those opportunities.

    Well seems like you haven't watched any football if you get this upset for so little diving that this game had.

    Yeah. Never understood people who get upset over diving in a game or from a particular player. It's an ever-present phenomena, and has been for years. You'd have an easier time pointing out the exceptions rather than those that do dive. Either you endure it, or this is not the sport for you; it's not really something you can't get away from.

    I always get upset with diving because it's gross. It boggles my mind that FIFA is okay with it. It's such a beautiful game blemished with so much unsportsmanlike conduct.

    Why are you so bothered by what I like and dislike? lol

    I'm on your side, basically. I never watch football outside of the world cup. And this will probably be my last. Football has become incredibly boring and the systematic diving and faking injuries is just too much.
