    Gotta love these success stories. The one Burgey posted earlier on Lukaku was great as well.

    Yeah, great read. And makes his penalty save against The Petulant One even sweeter.

    What the heck happened with that last corner kick from which Spain scored. The ball went out on the right hand side and they kicked it in from the other side, after sneaking it there while everyone is looking for it from the other side. Can you choose what side you want to take your corner from?

    I'm only basing this on the rule in wiki... 'The kick is taken from the corner of the field of play nearest to where it went out. '

    So Portugal have to play Uruguay instead of Russia now cause of the penalty decision (plus Ronaldo's penalty miss)

    Still confused about the Spain corner kick. Either the wiki rule is wrong or Spain cheated. Can't find any big furore over this so I'm guessing the playing side chooses their corner side and it was a great play by Spain. Can anyone confirm for a noob

    This is from FIFA laws of the game Law 17 on page 53 if you wish to check

    The ball must be placed inside the corner arc nearest to the point where the ball crossed the goal line
    How on earth did they allow the Spanish goal? It seems everyone lost their head over the VARS review that deemed the goal was not offside. How has no one realised the kick into the goal square was illegal in the first place? It was placed on the opposite side of the field from where the ball went out. Spain lost. While they would have still progressed on Goal Difference, they would not be top of the table. Is this not singularly the biggest FUP of the world cup? And yet there is not a world being said about it anywhere. I have to listen to my wife go on about this like a rabid flat earther. Tell me it isn't so.

    Is there any advantage at all from taking a corner from one end compared to the other?

    Depends who's taking them/defending them.

    Some players can deliver an inswinging cross better than one that swings out etc. ANd some teams can defend one type better than the other etc.

    In this particular instance there was a good advantage. It seemed most players, Spanish included were looking for the ball on the side where you'd expect the corner to be taken and were all huddling up near the square looking the wrong way. So the Spanish managed to catch them a little bit off guard and not set up to defend properly. Still a great goal scored - I love those back foot shots - and if legal it was a masterstroke from the Spanish players. In fact, even if not legal, it was a masterstroke. They duped everyone.

    I'll try and find footage - very hard to find though - they only show footage from the goal kick and not the minute before.
