Surely when some of the teams were complaining about having to play for 90minutes in the Qatar heat, having an added 10minutes or more stoppage time is counterproductive - or is that the plan?

Not really seen any sign of the heat having any effect on the player yet.
The air con seems to be working a treat.

I’ve watched Summer World Cups which were far hotter than we have in Qatar, I always thought that gave the likes of Brasil a slight edge, maybe not so much so this time fingers crossed.

Good 2nd half from Wales and may have nicked it but a draw over the full game fair result...still in it !
I thought that, shame Wales needed a talking to at half time , if they had played as well in the first half they would have won.

In the Premier league, when the board goes up for 2 minutes having had about 5 minutes of stoppages, people moan.
Now the board goes up with a more realistic number, people moan.

Officials can't win!

To think Iran beating England would have been a far lesser shock in terms of ratings.

For all the dialogue concerning human rights, put that to one side for just a moment, this could turn out to be a very memorable WC.

C’mon England. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

Not much added time in the Denmark Tunisia game.. because there wasn't feigning injury or VAR checks...An entertaining 0-0 game..
