Yep... It would be a disaster for Germany and their supporters if Germany lose today.

And Germany was down 1 man as well so it was amazing they still were able to pressure Sweden and give Kroos a chance to score a wonderful goal.

Barring few hiccups, the fancied teams are afterall progressing to next round.



Group D - 2 out of Nigeria, Iceland, Argentina
Group F - 2 out of Mexico Germany Sweden

Group H - 2 out of Japan Senegal Colombia.



What do you guys think? Which two will go thru in these groups ??

This World Cup has turned into a farce (VARce) due to VAR. It is selectively used against weaker nations of Asia, Africa.



1)Spain-Morocco match Before Spanish last minute goal, Busquets had a clear foul not given, Ball went out of the play not given but when Referee disallowed the goal for off-side , VAR tuned it over. Why this selective application of rules? Pique should have been given Red card at the start only but not given. VAR was silent.


2) Both penalties of Portugal and iran were disputed and referee got it wrong even after seeing replay. His original decision without VAR was better. Iran had two genuine penalty shouts not given earlier if they gave it to Ronaldo for such a dive.



Morocco and Iran might have progressed to next round if it was not for VAR.



Even a Bad Referee is atleast consistent. Selective application of replays has made the game worse. It has increased playacting. Earlier decisions used to come only if Referee sees it but now because of VAR, playacting and appeals for TV screen has increased. Absolute VARce !!
