  1. This World Cup has some of the most incompetent referees. The challenge from Pogba and the stamp by Matuidi should have gotten straight red cards.

  2. Sad seeing the once high goal average dwindling with every game. Somehow it was predictable in the knockout stage, with teams playing overly defensive and scared to lose.
