Absolute stonewall penalty, without VAR these things happen, but with VAR inexcusable.

Aye. But when you've a man-in-black holding a sound-suppressed Makarov to your head, making the 'right' decision can have many different permutations...rather like searching inside a matryoshka that contains an infinite number of smaller residents?

England v Russia in the semi-final is still on

That would be some match for various reasons!

Interesting no further mention of the VAR in the match summing up.

I think there were to many fouls to pull one up above another in that goal mouth incident. I am sure they just held their hands up and said 6 of one half a dozen of the other?

But then the man handling we saw Kane endure in our first match nearly every corner???

Pleased for Russia though...... the missus pulled them in here works sweepstake and everybody who was football savvy laughed at her......I hope they had Germany and Spain!!!

Russia to be fair are doing really well, almost as well as they did in Sochi 2014. 😮

I'm sure Colombia, Croatia & Switzerland are thinking exactly the same too.

FWIW, I don't think England are any better (or much worse to be fair) than the other teams there.  They are all well established World Cup & Euro Championship teams, regularly making it to the finals of both tournaments but never really posing a threat to win either tournament.

England have a chance, but they will have to be at their very best, and even then, they will need some luck to get past a few of those teams, starting with Colombia first, who I think, as with many South American teams, are going to be very difficult to beat.  I make Colombia very slight favourites.

Croatia have been my favourites to reach the WC final - class side.

Russia are dreadful - how Spain failed to beat them is beyond me.

England have as good a chance as anyone if they play at their best.

I'm afraid i don't agree with that. Having watched it from every angle Ramos was equally guilty of holding, if not more so, so the decision was correct. In fact it looks suspiciously as if Ramos was milking it as he has done scores of times in the past.

Spain failed to beat Russia because most of the passing was sideways. Only in extra time did they begin really began to move forward and really stretch the Russians. Spain today were poor.
