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.

Cuch would call this "assisted diving"!
He gonna have to answer to the Coca-Cola company.
All this self-pity over a silly soccer game.

It was in his role as member of the Irish Football Association that McCrum proposed the idea of the penalty kick to stop the prevalent practice at the time of defenders professionally fouling an attacking player to stop a goal. The idea was submitted to the June 1890 meeting of the International Football Association Board by the Irish FA's general secretary and IFAB representative Jack Reid.[8]

The original proposal read:


If any player shall intentionally trip or hold an opposing player, or deliberately handle the ball within twelve yards from his own goal line, the referee shall, on appeal, award the opposing side a penalty kick, to be taken from any point 12 yards from the goal line, under the following conditions: All players, with the exception of the player taking the penalty kick and the goalkeeper, shall stand behind the ball and at least six yards from it; the ball shall be in play when the kick is taken. A goal may be scored from a penalty kick.[9]

The proposal initially generated much derision and indignation amongst footballers and the press as the "Irishman's motion" or the "death penalty" as it was known, conceded that players might deliberately act unsportingly. This went against the Victorian idea of the amateur gentleman sportsman. Public opinion may have changed after an FA Cup quarter final between Stoke City and Notts County on 14 February 1891 where an indirect free kick after a deliberate handball on the goal line did not result in a goal.[9]

Looking back, it was a bad idea.

Let me explain. Kane, Rice, Maguire, Grealish are from the Irish diaspora. Grealish did play for Ireland, Take them and the Windrush diaspora and all is left is Pickford.

Same holds for France, NL and others, ceteris paribus,

I think you mean mutatis mutandis, but yes. And young master Pickford looked like a very angry young man, well before the penalty shootout.

What's the difference between the two then?

The former means all else being held constant, whereas the latter means having changed what needed changing. There is a subtle difference there. Of course, admittedly, I don’t speak Latin like a native.

I used to know Latin in the 60s (Latin mass good old days before it went vernacular plebs knew no Latin and I needed it to get into university and recite my oath of allegiance to Queen Elizabeth I in the Long Hall but that was before PC era).
