I haven't watched soccer/football in ages - can someone explain this VAR stuff and why that goal was cancelled?

 

There's something offensive to me in watching these African athletes who have literally been bred to play football, representing overweight Qataris on the world's biggest stage.  Deeply distasteful.  Modern day slavery it is. 

Their stadiums were built by workers from India, Pakistan and south east Asia. 
 

Now, enjoy the game:

6-2 England .....Whatever anybody says about England - They are there in cricket.... they are there in soccer.... they are there in rugby....

 

Not for nothing did the sun never set on the British empire. Respect.

They invented these sports...cricket and rugby are hardly played by a few nations so it's natural that England should be successful in them.

As for Football, they haven't have only won one major trophy at the international level and that was in 1966. Since then, no further success despite the English league by far being the richest in the world.

Well more respect to them - from Issac Newton to Alexander Fleming (Scottish doctor of penicillin fame at London hospital - the greatest medical discovery since Louis Pasteur ) to inventing sports - they are very creative. Their list is endless William Shakespeare to Andrew Lloyd Webber.... to even ballroom dancing - check Blackpool festival!!!!   More respect!

They are in the top 10 of football consistently. Make quarters and semis of WC.

 

I appreciate other teams in world top 10 when our own team loses and draws with Maldives sometimes.
