Dunno but there’s something about Saka that I find so warming. It’s not just that it’s a kid who has come through our academy and is doing well he’s just so humble with it. It’s like a school kid being allowed to fulfil his dreams in the best possible way.

It might be that i’m getting on a bit now and he’s old enough to be my son so I’m more soppy and more sentimental about our younger lads.

I hope he continues to flourish and love that he’s keeping foden out the side.

Absolutely, I always find it hugely odd whenever any opposition fan has anything bad to say about him, there is literally nothing unlikeable apart from the fact its annoying hes so good when he plays against the team you support.

But if you're an actual grown up who can analyse players beyond the kit they wear then there is a lot to like, particularly when you compare to many other players of his age who seem to have some misplaced arrogance or edge about them either on or off the pitch. Some players thrive in winding up opponents and opposition fans. Ramsdale for instance, so I can understand opposition fans thinking Ramsdale is a bit of a kn0b - but what is not to like about Saka - he's so humble.

Interesting that the refs are actually adding on the correct amount of added time. 9/10 minutes and it’s absolutely right. The token 3 minutes in prem games never accounts for the actual stoppages in play

From what I saw Senegal were anything but that and were boringly playing for a draw until Holland ended that idea.

Wales played better in their 2nd half against US but boy oh boy am I glad we didn't go back for Ramsey who looked well past it. Bale was equally rubbish. Ref was ok though and justifiably handed out yellows for nearly every professional foul which is rare to see.

Thanks Gooner 7. I'm quite sad that I missed it.

Those that can, are going off grid. Unfortunately, most can't afford it. In our case, there is always some other major expense that has priority. :icon_rabbit:

It’s a new approach.

Chairman of Fifa’s referees committee Pierluigi Collina confirmed last week that fourth officials had been instructed to keep on top of the time lost during matches at the tournament in Qatar, something they had also tried to do at the previous World Cup in Russia in 2018.

“In Russia, we tried to be more accurate in compensating for time lost during games and that’s why you saw six, seven or even eight minutes added on,” he told reporters at a pre-tournament briefing.

“Think about it: if you have three goals in a half, you’ll probably lose four or five minutes in total to celebrations and the restart.”

The result of this new approach was a number of records being broken.

According to Opta, the four single halves with the most stoppage time in a single World Cup match since records began in 1966 were all on Monday:

England v Iran first half (14:08 minutes)
England v Iran second half (13:08)
USA v Wales second half (10:34)
Senegal v Netherlands second half (10:03)

The England team did well yesterday – that’s high praise for me. However, it occurred to me that it could have been quite a different team.

Raheem Sterling was born in Jamaica and came here at the age of 5. Bukayo Saka’s parents hadn't long been in London before he was born so he might easily have declared for Nigeria.

Rice and Grealish both started their international careers playing for Ireland at most levels up to U21s. Declan Rice actually played for Ireland’s senior team.

How are they viewed over there?

Kudos to Saudi Arabia, they played the second half with lots of drive
Every player played out of their skin to deny Argentina
IMO, Di Maria slowed Argentina down

I was speaking generally about African teams.
I caught about 10 mins of the first half, did see Senegal driving forward a lot. But then got sleepy and went to bed.

Yes great physicality and tenacity from Saudis - not often you see Argentina bested in a muscle match as they were today. Though it has to be said some of the Saudi tackling was very raw - 21 fouls and countless bookings!

All how we see it I guess, but I thought Di Maria was the one Argentine to look dangerous when the going got tough. He kept going and made several crosses to no avail. So often Messi walks around in a game, only to sneak into position and suddenly burst into life with devastating effect. Not so much today, in particular in the second half.

They are far from popular and the chances are that even one of them could be the difference in getting us to a world cup or Euros.

I don't begrudge either of them. Both were born in England and have lived their whole lives there. Their families have a strong Irish connection (Grealish even played GAA as a kid) so when given the chance to play at schoolboys and then U21 level for Ireland, they were bound to take it. The problem is with the rules. The fact that Rice actually had played at senior international level for Ireland before switching is ridiculous.

Turner, Ramsdale, Szczesny, Leno, Fabianski and Martinez
[Edit, I see Fab is retired from international football]

Its almost more amazing that 5 of that 6 are first choice premier league goalies, and the other plays for Juve. Quite a crop.

Argh, in which case it's 4 as Leno isn't there.

That's the one. I knew there was five but assumed one was Fabianski.

The King of Saudi Arabia made today a national holiday. Great job.
Now for the American team to use that as inspiration. hehehe :42laughter:
If we get a draw, I'll be happy. I haven't watched any of our games but of course wish them the best of luck.
