    One of the worst matches I've ever seen on TV. Terrible passing and ball control, nobody could keep possession, and some of the most ridiculous acting injured rolling around on the ground. Every 2 or 3 minutes someone was lying on the floor screaming like their legs had been broken. Iran were shocking going forward. There was no way they were going to score a goal, fantastic diving header by the Moroccan chap to score the own goal for them. And now Iran are top of the group? :rolleyes::oops:

    Yeah it’s the kind of game that makes you sympathetic to football hooligans

    VAR comes to the World Cup.

    I'm audio only. Legit penalty?

    Yeah slight touch of the foot and didn’t get the ball. As an Aussie I hate it but the replay shows right decision

    Seems a bit too inconclusive to be 100% sure.

    And the ref should be 100% sure.
    He didn't give a penalty first time.

    Now he's given one to Australia & still checks he got it right.

    If it was given for handball by Umiti, isn't that a red card?

    Well if we play like we did tonight in the other two games we have a chance

    Lots of ppl saying France’s pen was soft personally thought it was there as much as it hurt

    Hope y'all had a better feed of commentary than me. Tony Meola noted they this "might feel like a loss for Australia" as the game went final, just a few minutes after he called West Germany one of the favorites.
