  2. Tragedy in Brazil. A referee kills a football player and his friends cut sb's throat the referee.


    1. In English:

    2. That's pretty brutal.

    3. I kindly ask you to not post photos on a website accessible to young people, thank you.

  3. Another possible DOGSO situation evaluated as YC, what do you think of the decision taken by Ricci for the penalty (2-0)?

  4. Wow, FIFA has engaged very good scriptwriters today ;)
    Rizzoli showed his class with a very good performance, although he had not many big decisions to take.

    My predictions for the semifinal:
    FRA-GHA: Lopez, Leal, Lopez, Garcia
    IRQ-URU: Cakir, Duran, Ongun, Doue

    IRQ-URU: Eriksson; Klasenius, Warnmark; Skomina
