‘Hero turn crιmιnal’: Latest score as Kane levels with penalty ‘credited’ by Tchouameni

Coverage of the FIFA World Cup quarterfinal match between England and France, live from Qatar, broadcast in real time in London.

England 0-1 France

Although this is not how England had hoped things would play out, they have, without a doubt, been the superior team for the majority of the first half.

This is before we even discuss the contentious calls that were made over Tchouameni’s first goal and Harry Kane’s potential penalty that was not awarded.

In the second half, everything is still up for grabs.


Within a few short seconds, England has two opportunities to call for a penalty kick.

Bellingham passes the ball to Saka, who is then knocked down by a tackle. Tchouameni then brings Saka to the ground, which is a clear violation of the rules. Kane to take…

GOAL! England (Kane, pen) 1-1 France

Kane versus Lloris.

And after some wait, the striker emerges victorious despite the fact that the ball wasn’t quite in the correct position.

He smashes it high to Lloris’ right, which forces the goalie to dive in the opposite direction.

What a hilarious situation we find ourselves in right now!

Why the Video Assistant Referee did not overturn the goal scored by Aurelien Tchouameni for France vs England despite the foul committed by Bukayo Saka

During the World Cup quarter-final match between France and England in Qatar, England’s players protested with the referee after Aurelien Tchouameni scored the first goal for France. Although it appeared like Arsenal star Bukayo Saka was fouled in the build-up to Les Bleus’ first goal, the goal was not disallowed by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).

Both Gareth Southgate and Didier Deschamps have decided to keep their sides the same for the remainder of the competition in the hopes of advancing to the semifinals. In their most recent two attempts at significant international competition, the Three Lions have advanced to both the semi-final and the final round.

The match got off to a strong start for England, but they found themselves down after Tchouameni scored a goal from a long range in the 17th minute. VAR determined that there was not sufficient contact between the two players for the referee to award England a penalty kick, despite the fact that Harry Kane had a strong case for a spot kick.

Peter Walton, a former referee, has provided an explanation as to why the video assistant referee did not overturn France’s score despite the fact that Saka was fouled in the buildup to Tchouameni’s first goal. Walton made these comments during ITV’s coverage of the match, saying: “They (the VAR) had the ability to go back and review it, and I believe that they really did so because it was the same attacking phase of play from when France got possession of the ball to when they scored their goal.

Ahead of the match against England, France’s Fofana stated, “We all have trust in Kylian.”

“The question at hand is: did they commit a foul? It’s hardly likely that it was because he’s easily knocked out by the smallest of touches because he’s so fragile.

“We have not in fact viewed any of the replays. But it’s just my viewpoint; in my view, he went down far too quickly for the video assistant referee to claim that he made a blatant mistake.”
