Should have been a foul and a yellow card for Giroud.

If he had started distributing yellow card much earlier maybe he would have been respected

Only thing I can think of is that the referee thought Giroud flicked the ball and Hazard tried to buy a foul. Hazard had flicked the ball right before the contact in the same direction that Giroud's touch would have taken. Either way, contact with ball or no by Giroud, it should have been a foul.

VAR is only for goals, penalties and straight reds iirc. How much would've loved VAR here, it's not their 'jurisdiction'.

They need to let coaches have a one use flag to automatically look at VAR. NFL has a system like this with each coach getting one red flag and can throw it on the field once per game to challenge anything.

Edit: almost anything.

I feel like that would slow the game down too much, which is why people were hesitant to adopt VAR to begin with. I dont understand why the VAR can't constantly be on duty, and then call a foul after the play if it was missed(within a reasonable amount of time). Things like this are really obvious and it should only take one replay to see that it was a foul.

Edit: i saw further down that VAR checks everything, but doesnt have the jurisdiction to overrule everything. Sounds like they just need to expand the jurisdiction.

Seriously. I think 99.99% of people exhaled expecting a 15 second break to set up the wall and a free kick. That was such an obvious foul everyone watching TV could see it.

I honestly wonder how refs can miss this. I mean really, how the FUCK can you make such a big mistake at such a crucial time? These refs have been doing this for years, they should know what position to be in to get the best view of the action. It's a shame they didn't get a free kick. Hazard gets fucked up and takes it like a man. My appreciation for Hazard makes me dislike Neymar a lot.

That's what upset me so much, I watched this match as a neutral. And I couldn't stand how your players took so many kicks and pushes while playing and stayed up, while French players fell down and started rolling on the ground for every little touch.

Seriously, just watching the stats someone would think Belgium is a team of violent pricks, while actually the story is that they weren't letting themselves drop at every little physical contact. Props to your team.

Saw a comment on the BBC stream that he's "Another player who doesnt get free kicks because refs are wised up to his theatrics."

I could see how Giroud's reaction could cause some sourness on Hazard's part. Rightfully so, in my opinion. If someone clearly fouled me like that, then went on to imply I was embellishing it followed up by what appears to be a lengthy thumbs up to the ref for not making the call, I'd probably get a little irked at them.

Second half had the most ridiculous calls by the ref in this whole tournament. France only had to dive while in possession of the ball and the yellow card was already in the air, while Belgium (the fairest team in all of the WC tbh) didn't even get this clear free kick. This free kick could have easily turned the game around. De Bruyne is known for his incredible free kicks and with guys like Lukaku and Witsel in front of the goals this was almost surely the equalizer. (Also rant bc France played like bitches in the second half. I had a lot of respect for Mbappe until this game, that shit he pulled with Witsel was nonsense and shouldn't have a place in modern football, especially against a team like Belgium. Remind you Mertens was kind enough to give the ball back to France when he shouldn't have. So have some decency to play like a real team too.)

19 points · 1 month ago

I confess I don't know the exact rule here—is it just a question of whether Giroud gets to the ball first or not? It looks to me like he does, just barely, but he may also step on Hazard's right foot in the process; and if he doesn't get to the ball, it's a clear foul (if not a yellow) for taking out his legs. I didn't see the second half, but out of context, with only one angle, this seems like a 50/50 call to me. If the French were getting a lot of soft foul calls I can see how this would seem like an egregious non-call.
