    I missed the second half, but if they recreate their first half performance against T&T and Panama it will be a short tournament.

    Scotland vs Argentina is the match of the tournament. Scotland was up 3-0, Argentina comes back to make it 3-2. Then in the 88th there was a tackle in the box that was later reviewed and awarded a penalty. PK is finally taken in the 91st, stopped, then another VAR for the keeper being off the line. Second shot goes in, now itís 3-3 in the 94th, except 4 minutes of stoppage time were added.

    Just a minute later the official blows her whistle to end the game even though there had only been about two minutes of actual play in the previous ten minutes. Everyone is so confused that even Argentina is yelling at her wondering whatís going on.

    I've never understood the failure to handle stoppage time with **** happens around/after the announcement of how much is left.

    Earlier this year MNUFC had a game where they were down by 1, announced stoppage time is minimum of 3 minutes, after the announcement the other team gets called for 2 yellows for delay of game. yet ultimately the ref blows his whistle at 3:30 minutes of stoppage time...***

    Watching Canada v Mexico I feel like this is one of those matchups that will go into halftime 0-0 but end up like 3, 4, 5-0 Mexico.

    As for soccer in America I would think that as the immigrant population tied to Latin America continues to grow so too will the influence of soccer.
    Yup. More satellite dishes bought to watch good leagues

    While I realize there probably should have been more time there was at least 4 minutes right?

    Yeah, shouldíve been at least 4 more. FIFA has been really public about time added for VAR. She didnít do that and potentially eliminated a team. Sheís done.

    So what's a tougher knockout round matchup - Spain or the loser of NED/CAN? Spain looks pretty decent based on their results.

    Either road is difficult. Win or tie and it's likely Spain then France, lose and it's Canada then Germany. It's a coin flip.

    Nigeria will be the final 3rd place team if Chile doesn't win by 3+ goals or Thailand doesn't win by 15+ goals ()
