    There's been some pushback on the fair play rule on social media. I highly doubt people would be happy if it had gone to drawing lots, though I haven't seen it before so that would've been kinda cool.

    About the only other tiebreaker I've seen be mentioned is time leading. Not sure if it was just time spent in the lead or net time that would subtract if you're losing, but after that there's not much that's actually decided on the field to make into a tiebreaker.

    Personally I don't mind the fair play. It's better than random chance with lots.

    THe best way is probably to have any game that ends in a draw in the group stage to go straight to penalty kicks to be used as a tiebreaker somewhere in the grand scheme of things....

    Sounds like that's the plan for the 48 team cup so teams can't just sit for a 0-0 draw if they're in a good position.

    There is something fun about all the scenarios on that final day, though.

    Dumb foul to take there. I don't think he gets the ball before it's out of bounds and even if he did not sure he'd be in a great position.

    Why does anyone want to be a soccer official? You can't make any call without three guys from both teams surrounding you.

    Didier Deschamps is such a brutal manager. You have probably the most attacking talent in the world and a stacked midfield and yet you're still playing not to lose against a brutal Argentina team..

    as soon as I say this Pavard scores a screamer

    0/1, but that was a great game. Argentina just couldn't handle the counters. Still no reason for the foul that lead to the first goal on the penalty, he already knocked him off his path outside the box and then added the unnecessary shove to give him the penalty.
