Ouch. On replay, he easily could have broken a finger there. I don't see the foul, but I do think he's actually hurt.
Because they are a top team. They don't need to writhe on the ground and cry like children to ref. It re-enforces the prejudice against the game by the casual fans watching a supposed the champion caliber team acting out like 5 year olds.This has been egregious, but why do folks pretend this is a problem with Italy? Portugal combines it with even dirtier play. Every South American team and most in CONCACAF are no different. It sucks and it needs to be stamped out, but it’s not just these guys.
He’s been so good, especially in his almost telepathic connection with Insigne. Now Emerson has to step up, which he is capable of, especially since it’s an attack-first role. But there will be some adjustment period.
Or, if they don’t want to do that, have the time added on total visible all the game so that everyone can see it being added to as the game progresses.Dumb question but don't they eliminate time wasting if they just shifted to pausing the clock during deadballs? Do that and theres no more incentive for time wasting.
