Oh wait, the discussion is about Panama's first goal. Yeah, that may seem about right :p

Indeed. Stuff like that gets ignored in football, but I'd take it with a pinch of salt since we are talking about someone as "irrelevant" as Panama...

Oh well, I doubt it but who knows it could be another sort of wake-up call to show that football is arguably the worst sport in the world in terms of 'going with the times'. It's of course inexcusable that stuff like video-referees and goal-line technology aren't 100% adopted in every major competition yet (not to even speak of simply stopping the clock, so those thousands of players who are suddenly nearly dying of pain when someone looks at them wrong and their team is leading won't actually 'win' free time anymore). 

 

Football can barely be taken seriously because of these simple things they just seem to refuse to adopt on a large scale.

Excuse me, but did he just score a goal? My Spanish isn't good so I couldn't hear it :p 

 

This is why I most likely won't move to South America, it's impossible to watch sports without commentators like this I think :d (I mean, dude, tell me who made the goal, what it means etc, you know, be a commentator :lol:)

I don't think it goes like that, there can't be more than 2 European teams in the same group.
