    I've always found it curious with how "rough" South American football can be compared to European football. Especially since many of the top players are based in Europe. You'd think that playing over there would help mellow things out, but it doesn't seem to do anything. I wonder if there is some resentment towards players like Messi for leaving (think blue collar vs white collar).
    That may be part of it but, it’s a lot to do with tactics (think “hack-a-Shaq”, Messi can’t be Messi if you hack him down at midfield) and officiating (persistent infringement is a caution but almost never used because of TPTB not wanting too many cautions).

    • Denmark and England tied at 1 heading into halftime!

      And 30 years ago the US win their first Gold Cup.

            Yeah, 1992. One of the craziest stories in soccer. They didn’t even qualify, they only played because UN Sanctions against Yugoslavia forced Yugoslavia out and Denmark replaced them.

              • Highlights from the Argentina v Colombia shootout with subtitles for the Argentinian GK’s trash talk.

                I’ve done plenty of KFTM shootouts in my refereeing career but I’ve never seen trash talk, let alone like that.

                  • UEFA opens investigation into England for fan behavior during semifinal against Denmark.

                    It includes booing during Denmark’s National Anthem.

                    UEFA is so quaint…

                      • I think my one takeaway from the Euros and Copa America is that players, especially the top players, are fatigued from the sheer amount games lately, and it’s only going to get worse by the World Cup. Which sucks because I feel 2022 will be the last hurrah for a decently competitive World Cup. 2026 brings in 48 teams and, with the way the allocations are, there’s gonna be some awful teams and some big blowouts.

                          The thing I hate is with all the extra teams it makes the qualifiers pretty meaningless for all the big countries. It means you have very little meaningful football outside of the big tournaments and you are 100% correct having the extra teams makes the tournaments a lot less enjoyable.

                            Yeah, I don’t think we’ll approach USAvThailand at the 2019 Women’s World Cup level but with Asia getting 8 spots, Africa getting 9, and CONCACAF 6 there’s going to be some huge mismatches.

                            I guess with Europe only going from 13 to 16 means qualifying there will still be a challenge and one or two notable teams will still miss out.
