After a strong start by France, Germany have found their rhythm and look very good now. Can't believe France have left out Kante. I'd have thought his energy in midfield would have been exactly what France would need in this game.

Since when is heading into your hand, deliberate!?

cpfc4evandeva
07-07-2016, 07:54 PM
I don't think that's debatable. The ball was heading towards the Frenchman's head, and Schweinsteiger inexplicably puts his hand towards where the ball is going.

He's not protecting his face, as Shearer suggested.

sheepy
07-07-2016, 07:54 PM
You just can't lead with your hand there as a defender.

Ball could easily be going goalwards after the header so think the ref's decision is spot on.

Don't even get me started on Mark Lawrenson. His co-commentary gets more embarassing by the year. He clearly does absolutely no research before games. Seaweed tw*t.
