    I think that should have been a red. The rules changed so that accidental fouls cannot be punished with a red and a penalty, but that was a pretty deliberate and desperate attempt to prevent a tap in. I'm rooting for Denmark though so can't say I'm too fussed.

      Casper is a great keeper in his own right and have often wondered if he could have played for England. He was born here wasn't he?

      My money is on him to get them through.

      Not sure how Gary Neville can praise Denmark and the defender for that. Croatia had an open goal to win the game and only a clear foul has stopped them. Forget the 115 minutes before it, on that incident alone Denmark have cheated to stay in the game. I can accept they had to do it, but don’t praise them for it!
      In reverse I thought he also over praised the attacking move.

      Two defensive statues, right next to a static striker, allowed him to get a long head start in a foot race.

      That’s bread n butter defending for any centre half.

      How?
      Really? Clean through on goal, already past the keeper. That is red in anyone's language. And do not come back to me with the whole double punishment penalty adjustment to the rules, this is an order of magnitude above the standard goalie brings down the striker red card and penalty.
      It's probably nice to be Olympic champion. Like winning Gent-Wevelgem or something.

      He could have.

      A joke today. Russia’s RB Fernandes is Brazilian with a full Brazilian cap, moved to Russia 6 years ago. The Spain and Portugal teams contain born n bred Brazilians.

      Looked to me he wasn't very far away from the ball at all, therefore, you cannot deem it as a purposeful foul.

      Amazing how easy it is to not score a penalty.
