Had my first go on one of those 'what's gonna happen in the game?' bets today England v Lithuania. Got six out of seven right. Lost on amount of injury time at the very end but here's the thing: had it as 'four minutes plus'. Well was feeling confident as there was a three minute injury delay around 78mins and six substitutions in the second half and a few bookings.

No. Three minutes injury time given only. Thought bookings and sub time counted toward. Was I wrong?

Not wrong, but it's very subjective decision and also depending on the score and the importance/fairness to both time of additional time. In other words, with the score being 4-0, there really isn't much point to extend play by another 1-2 minutes.
