That's just plain stupid. In any sport btw.

 

The thing is most hockey tournaments are hosted in a single stadium, so there isn't really any room for that. Only exceptions I can think of were 2014 WC in Hague and the last olympics, they had two fields but still there weren't simultaneous games.

while I agree with you but I wonder if we have such a thing in any sport beside Football ?!

 

I see sometimes we have that in volleyball or basketball but that's not a "rule" even at the Olympics (of course beside football)

Well I forgot about what @LDOG mentioned (games often being played in one stadium), so in that situation it makes sense of course. When there are multiple stadiums, I really can't imagine why they'd let the games be played at separate times, besides, obviously, money.

France advances to R16! I knew they had it in them.

 

Our younger players played many minutes and some of them are terrible so I'm not completely surprised with the result.

 

Spain didn't deserve to go out, they were much better comparatively than NZ in all matches.

Just to clarify, they're both through to the crossovers then, correct? With both of them not being able to get any more than that :p

Australia is secured first place. If they draw, Ireland will be second and England third. If there is a winner, the winnner will be second and the loser fourth.

Freakishly annoying the only bookmakers where I can somewhat reasonably bet a little have the lowest draw odds :mad:

I was kinda at the edge of my seat during the final minutes as I had predicted +7 GD for Australia, if they scored the 12th I'd have been left with only the basic correct result points in prediction :d

Great to see two teams who didn't play to draw it, but to win it. :cheer: (Though not great for my prediction. A draw would have been better. :p)
