It's the straight leg, and the position of the foot which is the issue.

He didn’t have much choice though, he was on the stretch. Just very unfortunate the player got injured. You see so many clearances like that in a typical game, just without the injury.

Both teams giving it everything. Sweden will have psychological edge if they get through to pens after going down to 10 men.

but most of those are pointing the toe, not the full studs. its the flat foot that does the damage and is not allowed.

That's going to give Ukraine a lot of energy for our game. Croatia played a day later and went to penalties and then beat us so.......

if that had been in the Prem early last season they would still be looking at it and have eventually called it offside.

Wow.
What a battling game that was.
Sweden play some good football but I think we would have coped with them.
Ukraine do have a toughness about them that I am concerned about.
They can't be taken lightly.

Deserved in the end imho.

Sweden seemed so conservative, defending in big numbers. Hughtonesque.

Ukraine weren’t eye catching, but looked to create openings.
