Apart from ex Fulham players  Riuz and Mitrovic are there any others at the World Cup? I noticed Dejagah an unused sub for Iran the other day.

Ragnar Sigurdsson is playing for Iceland. We have a former youth player that starts for Nigeria.

Don't think there is anyone else.

Good video there about how the actual football itself can change the way we see the game / goals.

I think the old Telstar is the perfect balance monochrome design (if not the panels), really makes shots on goal appear to fizz, or curl, etc.

The new Telstar-ish ball isn't bad at all, and the stunningness of Nachos fizzler for Spain was surely the epitome of this affect.

Bloody Beautiful.

Impressed by the standard of Football in the Serbia vs Costa Rica game so far. Mitro vs Ruiz.

Great to see Mexico beat Germany. Deserved and hopefully will give many teams a bit of a problem on the break.

Panama picking up an impressive number of yellow cards, I expect a red or two to follow shortly.

Watching Dembele... he doesn’t really make himself available does he.. doesn’t work hard enough to get into space. He’s always ambled about the pitch but I do notice this could be construed as laziness actually given he rarely touches the ball.

VAR misses an obvious penalty for England. It really is a complete joke.

I didn't like VAR before this game. It's really getting on my nerves now.

So does it automatically look at it?

Or does the ref need to request it?

Also.. does the TV coverage show the VAR viewpoint being analysed?

If the Dabbers and co had bothered putting the ball in the net when it mattered in the first half no one would be even mentioning VAR right now

I thought that the Kane wrestle was six of one and half a dozen of the other.

England might have scraped a win but were generally so poor. Like 11 players playing together for the 1st time. Kane is the only player who looks like he knows what he is doing.

Don't get too excited!
We just struggled to beat a team that wasn't interested in playing.

How they could have done with Sess (and Kamara).
