Certified banger? Or unofficial record copy?

I agree for the most part but there are occasions where the offside is uber clear and the AR let's the play run nonetheless...and one of these someone is going to sustain a major injury simply because the AR waited 30 seconds to raise his flag for a player who was 3 yards off.

Nuts that he was playing in B2 last year. Good for him.

I tend to agree… but I also have a suspicion that ARs are looking for other fouls more often now instead of being so focused on offside, and that's good too.

I definitely think VAR needs to call it down sooner sometimes.

Glad it isn't just me. I'm not used to seeing the looooong delay in offsides. That makes no sense to me. Either call it immediately or don't call it at all.

I feel like most leagues are doing it this way now.

They all are, because it's the right thing to do.

As frustrating as it is to have it called back late, it's far worse to have it called back early and wrong.

Good game. Although I'd wish Spain would finish a bit more of their chances.

And after MD2 the Ticos are sitting better than the US, Mexico and of course Canada is already out.

Who would have thought.

Spain, Japan, and (improbably) Costa Rica are in a win and advance situation.

Germany needs Spain to get a result (or to annihilate Costa Rica by 7+ goals.)

I'm not sure I would classify "needing to beat Germany" as better than "needing to beat Iran".

They have more points and wins after two games than we do.

This will be another crazy finish tomorrow. How can this not be labeled the Group of Death? Think about it, there is a high chance that Germany goes home, and the two that make it out will be very good teams! I'll get some disagreement, but Costa Rica is a good team.

I'll play...

Spain and Japan - 1-1
Germany 2-0 over Costa

Final Standings
Spain 5
Germany 4 (+1 GD)
Japan 4 (0 GD)
Costa 3

The GER-CRC match will be fascinating. It will have an all female crew including ARs who have never in their life worked games at this level. If the Ticos go all CONCACAF this could turn into a world class **** show.

Not sure if it translates but female refs give out a massive amount more cards than males in the women's soccer. Like 5 to 1.
oh no

Well, the automated offsides technology alleviates some of the risk of having inexperienced ARs.
