time. Chile v Japan. Let's see which Alexis Sanchez shows up for Chile. 🇨🇱 For Japan, new Real Madrid signing Takefusa Kobo, pinched from under Barcelona's noses, starts. 🇯🇵

And 2 weeks left until pre-season. Unreal.

Honestly starting to think whoever runs that account is a City fan. Next level trolling on a daily basis.

What is the actual reason for him saying all this? A lack of game time? Find Lukaku's sudden disdain for the club strange (although very telling).

Would be an absolutely dreadful addition to the game. Tiny changes of foot positioning penalised almost arbitrarily and at random, with yellow cards. Handball rule also awful.

A short thread about the woman who burst into tears on the bench when Thailand scored against Sweden on Sunday. She is NOT just a random Thai staff member.

There is, but it's how it is enforced that leaves it open to bias. If you review every penalty at this tournament (or u20WC) the keeper is similarly positioned when it's taken.

Not that bothered about the players encroaching tbh, it's a side issue - although it sums up the main point which is how randomly these decisions are enforced.

The encroachment was minor, have seen that hundreds of times since VAR brought in. How and when it's enforced is the question.

Would be interesting to keep a track of VAR and any inherent biases that come from its use in football. We already know AI has clear gender and racial biases, let's see if use of VAR is any different.

Same thing happened in the Under-20 World Cup to effectively knock Senegal out. Selective use of VAR.

Sums it up. Welcome to the age of VAR bias and selective refereeing. The penalty rule in particular is a shambles.

FT Italy 🇮🇹 3-1 🇪🇸 Spain (Chiesa x 2, Pellegrini (pen), Ceballos) - Hosts fully deserving of the win, more aggressive, energetic and hungrier than Spain, led by Federico Chiesa who was very impressive. He seemed to love the spotlight and scored 2 goals.
