The England vs Belgium game would have been great if there was actually something to play for. The current pre placed setup encourages either own goals or harsh tackles.

What are people's thoughts on the Fair Play points that means yellow are basically deciding who goes through? In my opinion, it gives too much power to the whim of the refs. Quite often you'll see no yellow given for a foul at the start of the game to make sure they keep control, but it's not con...

Right, with the qualification to next round done and dusted, who do you think was best among the eliminated teams? Or rather, which team did you think did well actually but got eliminated?

The world cup to me is highlightling how poor defenders have got. Yes techniquelly they are better than ever, but if you put a cross in the box or change a direction with a pass they are so confused.
