Denmark should just think about packing up and walking out of the tournament. Shameful if they came under UEFA pressure to play so soon. You could see how badly their players were affected by the incident at the time. National FA’s need to show some balls and some solidarity.

This.

You lot talking about that offside must have forgotten the Harry Kane incident at Anfield that led to the dodgy pen a few years back. Kane was already offside when the pass was played towards him. Lovren tried to intercept (he couldn't assume Kane was offside and had to try and play the ball, and there was no VAR in the PL at the time) but got a faint touch on it. Kane ran through and 'initiated contact' with Karius. Kane missed the penalty anyway, but still benefitted from being in an offside position. It's a terrible law that needs correcting, but they don't see things like that as gaining an advantage, whereas a stray hair and fraction of a millimetre (maybe) beyond the last defender is definitely seen as gaining an advantage.

We had a goal disallowed this season just gone when a defender touched the ball, perhaps playing Jota onside, but it was deemed accidental. Can’t remember the who we were playing although it was at Anfield.

I thought it was deemed the defender tried to touch it, but didn't. Therefore ball was from Liverpool player to Liverpool player and offside. 

It was late in the season, may have been Villa but not sure.

If any gentlemen/scholar has a "safe" stream for the England/Croatia game for my Dad to watch on his Mrs PC, I'd be grateful for the link.

The danish national team coach has clarified in the post match interviews that there was never any real opportunity to cancel the games. They were pressured to play on or to finish the game Sunday at noon. What absolute cunt of an organisation UEFA is.

 

The Danish captain Simon Kjær was one of the worst affected and the reason he came off was because he simply couldn't handle it any longer.

I don't know if something's lost in translation, but it doesn't sound quite as bad as you suggest:

 

 

Hjulmand described how the players agreed to wait until they were sure Eriksen was OK, and then chose between the two options they were offered: either to carry on or to return on Sunday at 2pm. “There was no pressure from Uefa to play tonight,” he said. “We knew we had two options. The players couldn’t imagine not being able to sleep tonight and then having to get on the bus and come in again tomorrow. Honestly it was best to get it over with. Of course you can’t play a game with such feelings and what we tried to do was incredible.”

Sorry, Joseph, but it’s the very definition of being pressurised.


Sorry you’ve all just stood and watched a team mate effectively collapse, to all intents and purposes die, and be resuscitated on the pitch, but if you can either just finish it now or by 12 tomorrow then that’s good for us.

 

the last sentence is a very diplomatic way of saying their heads were fucked. And why wouldn’t they be. They’d just gone through a very traumatic situation and were being told “yeah, sorry to hear that but just get on with it.”

Every national FA involved should sign a letter of condemnation of UEFA’s behaviour. They need a shot across the bows.

- Vi blev præsenteret for to muligheder. Kampen skulle spilles færdig i aften (lørdag, red.) eller søndag kl. 12.00.

- Det var totalt uoverskueligt for spillerne at tage hjem på hotellet, ikke sove hele natten og så starte bussen for at køre tilbage søndag og spille kampen færdig.

- Helt ærligt handlede det om at få det overstået. Det var, hvad spillerne valgte sammen, siger en meget bevæget Kasper Hjulmand på pressemødet efter nederlaget.
 

-> We got 2 choices. The game should be finished tonight or tomorrow Sunday at 12. 
it wasn’t something the team could face to go back to the hotel, not sleep all night and then start the bus to get back here and play n Sunday. 
to tell you the truth, we just wanted to get it over with. That was what the players chose. Says Kasper Hjulmand at the press conference after the defeat. 
 

those was his exact words.

Utterly bizarre. Shaw and Chilwell have played really well this season, ridiculous they are being shifted so there is basically a set piece taker in the side.

 

Mings was dreadful in the last friendly, that type of performance should play you out of the team.

Absolutely disgraceful that UEFA even considered it acceptable to ask did they want to play on, never mind allow it. Zero consideration of what every single player went through, it was obvious to everyone that that neither team was in a fit state to play.
 

Completely disgusting and UEFA should be universally derided for that.

Correct.  Even Fabregas and Richards said they would not have been able to continue the game as the Danes did.  I actually found the honesty from both of them refreshing.

Peter Schmeichel was on bbc 5 live earlier criticising UEFA for this, if you want to hear that and also the feed that most tv stations was using, which is the one that was zooming in on Christian Eriksen getting chest compressions etc. was an UEFA controlled ‘world feed’.  The more I hear about these cunts the more despicable they are. Utter utter scum.

What are the Finns saying? Were they pressured into playing too?

 

I was shocked to see game was resumed so soon but simply cannot believe someone can pressure you into playing after what happened. You refuse and go public with what they are trying to do to you and everybody will be on your side. This day and age this is all that matters.

I can’t imagine the amount of tests he’ll be going through before stepping onto a footy pitch again. I’m trying to remember the name of the football player from years ago with the hole in the heart?

The doctor doing all of Spurs medical was being interviewed and they say the go through a full examination each year. He said that until 2019, when he last examined Eriksen, he had perfect heart condition, obviously couldn’t say if something had happened later on. He said he was worried he had missed something, after what happened yesterday, so went over all the test results again and still the same result, perfect heart tests.

Those words are the only ones that really matter, when understanding how UEFA saw the situation.

Russia is a vast country, with a fair interest in football, isn't it? 

Why no random discovery of a new superstar? It seems to defy the odds of not uncovering an Owen, or a Rooney, nevermind a Messi or Ronaldo. 

Probably lack of facilities and resources is my guess? For all the faults of Communist Russia,sport was high on their agenda even if was for propaganda purpose as much as anything. A lot of Russia is now a soulless wasteland devoid of social organisations such as sports clubs. Many stand abandoned and ruined in former USSR countries too.

#southgateout trending on Twitter because of his rumoured team selection…

Looking belatedly at an article in a free newspaper magazine about the Euros and trying to compute why Croatia are 6/1 against when they have Modric , Rebic, Kramaric, Orsic, Kovacic, Perisic and Vlasic ( and probably a load of other decent ic's )

    • VAR brought in for offsides on the basis that a player was or wasn't offside even by the smallest of margins. Drawing wider lines is moving the deck chairs as there will still be endless controversy over whether player was just over or just behind the wider line . Cut to the chase and the the real change is that we wont see the lines on screen any more so wont be able to scrutinise their fuck ups.  As for pens and the degree of contact required then good luck with that , Flawed as it players do generally understand the risks they take tackling in the box but now we are going to get arguments and inconsistencies again about how much contact is allowed .   The only benefit I can see is that it might speed up the games a little but it won't make it any fairer or consistent.  
    • Xherdan Shaqiri says he is raring to go for Liverpool ahead of the new season and in an interview with the club’s website he did not mention leaving Anfield.   In an apparent change of tact, the Switzerland star now looks focused on winning major honours at Liverpool.   Only last week the 29-year-old attacker revealed his time at Anfield was coming to an end.   Shaqiri has been ripe for a transfer for the last 18 months, but the former Basel man said he was ready for a new challenge very recently.   It appeared his patience at Anfield had expired and with Harvey Elliott primed for a chance in the first-team after excelling at Blackburn last year, both Shaqiri and Divock Origi were tipped to make way.   Speaking to Corriere dello Sport (via Fabrizio Romano), Shaqiri revealed the Liverpool board had accepted his request for a “new challenge”.   “I told Liverpool board I feel ready for a new challenge,” said Shaqiri. “They accepted my decision and will now consider bids to sell me. Liverpool won’t stop me this summer.   “I’d love to come back to Italy, and I’d like to play for Lazio.”   But the Reds’ No.23 reported for pre-season training last week and Liverpoolfc.com have interviewed him.   Now, it’s clear they would have avoided all transfer talk, but his focus seems to be solely on Liverpool.   Asked how he was feeling, he said: “Good, good. I’m happy to be with the team again here. I’m looking forward to having a good pre-season and start a good campaign again.   “We had some holidays, the guys who were at the Euros or the Copa America. I’m a couple of days here and I’m trying to get 100 per cent fit again. I’m feeling good.   “It was a very good Euros personally and of course with my country. It was something historical what we achieved and it’s something special for my country. I’m very proud of this.   “It says to me the hard work I do every day and with my country. I’m very, very pleased and happy and proud, of course, to achieve this kind of thing. I hope much more is going to come.”   Asked if his exploits at Euro 2020 had lifted his spirits, he said: “I’m looking forward to the new season and hopefully we’re going to achieve what we want to achieve with this club.   “Our goal is always to win, to play for titles and to give 100 per cent on the pitch. Then we will see what happens. But, of course, we’re going to try everything to win.   “Obviously we have a few players who were injured, they are back and they give us [an] extra boost for sure. The fans are going to be back again, I think, and that also gives us another boost to try to achieve our goals this season.   “We know how Anfield is when we have a game and how they push us through the game and how many times we won the games or we came back with the fans – something special. Of course, it’s going to give us an extra boost.”   While Shaqiri is convinced Jurgen Klopp’s men can get back to competing for the title this season.   “Of course, yeah. We have [a] top-quality group and very good lads – this is also very important to have good characters. To achieve as a club, we need to stick together as a team.   “If we do that and if we give everything what we have with our talent on the pitch and fight together with the team then we can achieve a lot of things this season,” he added.
