    73' 0-0 France cross from arc top wide left to Le Sommer at box top 6-left, micro-flick header bounces across to 10m 1/4 right. Ebere kicks through Asseyi's left hamstring, rotates her backward and Asseyi lands flat on back. Foul, VAR check ...

    75' 0-0 ... penalty, 2nd yellow card = red card on Ebere.

    76' 0-0 Renard pk, stutter right instep pull off left post low beyond Nnadozie's dive (she guessed right), bounces outward over endline left. But 2nd VAR check ...

    78' 0-0 ... Nnadozie took two steps off her line before the kick! Retake, yellow card on Nnadozie (by rule?).

    79' 0-1 Renard pk, right instep chip into back right high, over Nnodozie's dive.

    Second chance taken. 0-1 to France. I am not impressed with this team.

    Playing with the VAR is not serious football: it is a joke! :devilish:

    Now France scores. Sloppy play by Nigeria.

    France wasn't scoring.....all Nigeria had to do was keep their cool and not make dumb mistakes. But that's what you get with inexperienced players I suppose.

    I really don't like that they gave France a second shot at the PK. Looks like the Nigerian keeper had one foot on the line.

    New rules. Not a ref issue.

    This VAR goalkeeper review rule makes the game much worse. Way to go, FIFA.

    Seriously, Nigeria has been hard done by--like South Africa against Spain. I haven't seen a close shot, but it didn't look like the Nigerian keeper came forward very much at all--a small step? This bothers me because goalkeepers almost NEVER get called for that--it's incredibly rare. Now, they call it.

    I love the Nigerian kits, by the way--both the design and the colors. Very cool.

    The ref always has the final decision.

    Why not bring in Oshoala sooner?

    Is there equivalent rule for penalty taker?

    I want France to win but I have to agree with you. They are looking rather poor so far in this tournament. Other teams such as England, USA, Germany or even Italy looked more promising.

    I still think Nigeria goes through to the knockouts. Don't see the third place finishers from Groups D and F advancing.

    The ref has to give a yellow card if she's going to call that, and according to the Laws, while I don't really like it, the ref had to call a retake. I don't know why a retake for Lloyd's wasn't awarded if Renard got to take this one again though.

    In what way did the U.S. sweat? They didn't need a PK to win. Sorry, this argument doesn't fly. USA would've won their match regardless.

    I'm not sure. A question for the 2019 WWC ref thread here.

    When did they start really enforcing these rules? I would expect in the 2-3 years leading up to the WWC, so teams and GK's can get accustomed to them.

    I totally agree. They should've started calling these at least 2-3 years leading up to the WWC, so teams can prepare for it.
