    I assume fair play means yellows/reds?

    The Saudis score. But Mexico can still advance with one more goal, because goal FOR would tip it in their favor.

    Although not going forward due to "fair play" would have been the most delicious of results - this is also good.

    Agreed.

    Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of hacks.

    And it would have been so much sweeter if they went out on fair play points.

    So If we were to beat Netherlands we get the winner of Argentina & the other country who calls it Soccer correct ?

    I’m sure a lot of us rooted for the Aussies because Degenek but 3 of my cousins were born there before moving to Cincinnati in jr high. So I always pull for them

    Worth noting that, rather than getting the usual 10 minutes, Degenek started and went 90+.

    What a wild day for group stage soccer. Coincidentally, I was driving at 10 am and 2 pm matching the game times. So I was listening to one game while receiving texts about the other game and about the larger group picture.

    The two o’clock drive was rather eventful. Voice to text was fun. CarPlay was my MVP. From me - “how many goals does Mexico need to advance?” to being told that the second team could advance on disciplinary record(!!!).

    What a day for memorable drives.

    More than I was able to follow for the 10 AM games and first half of the 2 PM set. I was watching the scores and table on the ESPN app while waiting to see if i would be called to serve on a jury (I wasn't).

    And, according to the lineup anyway, it looks like he played RB instead of CB. (Although I haven't watched it on DVR yet to confirm.)

    Yes. He did play RB. Australia went with a very defensive lineup.

    In a way fair play made them have to extend for another goal and left them exposed. So I will choose to believe them playing dirty costs them.

    That KSA goal didn't actually change anything though. Mexico would still have gone through if they'd scored a third.

    I guess it might end up bumping them down from 18th to 20th or something in the final standings, for whatever that's worth.

    Collect your winnings if you had Morocco finishing top in their group.

    And Canada's performance was as miserable as Qatar's. Wow.
