    01:55 your opinion?
    furthermore, 1-0 looks like offside, no clear replay anyway

    1. 2:15 - a player without any number? A little bit strange at such a tournament but probably due his kit full of blood.

      The question is: Is a wrong number instead better or even no number as he did it? (if he has indeed no 2nd kit...)

    2. 1:55 - play on for me

      There were two more interesting incidents. Is the yellow card showed by Alioum enough in the first situation? Should Sanfrecce have had a penalty (second situation)?


    3. 1) SFP. Body language by Alioum is weak in such situation, the advantage gesture is really delayed, very likely he doesn't realize the severity of offense.

      2) Deliberate handball, crucial mistake. Nevertheless, in the live action and in some replays it looked like a header, I can still understand why Alioum missed that, but it is indeed an important mistake.

  2. It's nice that finally someone called him by his real name. He is often presented as Néant Alioum (recently as same Alioum) but Néant means 'none' in French. Here the full article about this issue:

    1. In fact his name is Alioum Alioum not Neant or Sidi. A mistake made by the Federation of Cameroon and a misinterpretation of FIFA, in late 2007, which caused several disinformation, and to date has not been fixed. But in fact, his name given by the parents, is Alioum Alioum.

  3. New Adidas 2016 Kit on show for the first time also!
