Players disputing referees decisions all the time and threatening them, sputum all over the place, players faking injuries, fans hatred, racism, brawls in the stadium and the streets, destruction of public furniture. Football never disappoints! This competition was definitely worth a few hundred covid deaths.

Panem et circenses. The rot starts at the top.

Which manager lets a 19-year old kid take the last penalty?

In the Nordic skiing world championships this winter, Norway put a 19-year old rookie on the anchor leg in the women’s relay race. Similar pressure, except she stood up to it and secured the gold medal. More exciting to watch, too!

On one hand, it is rather more gentle than a sweeping kick to the ankles or planting your cleats in someone’s crotch. On the other hand, it is blatantly and unquestionably wrong.
