Witnessing the matches from the beginning of the 2022 World Cup, fans must have wondered why the referee gave each extra time so much. The head of the FIFA referee committee, Mr. Pierluigi Colina, explained to Vn88 in detail about this issue.
Yesterday morning, there were more than 100 minutes of play in the Netherlands’ 2-0 victory over Senegal in Group A, and even the opening match between the host and Ecuador on November 20 exceeded 100 minutes of total ball time. rolling. Not stopping there, England’s match against Iran also had 27 extra minutes, with 14 minutes in the first half and 13 minutes in the second half.
After yesterday’s competition, Vn88.cx recorded, the World Cup set a record when “converging” all four rounds with the longest amount of injury time in the World Cup (statistics from 1966 to present). That was the first half of the England – Iran match (14 minutes 08 seconds), the second half of the England – Iran match (13 minutes 08 seconds), the second half of the US – Wales match (10 minutes 34 seconds) and the second half of the Netherlands – Senegal match (10 minutes). minutes 3 seconds).
In many moments, fans have the feeling that the total amount of time to make up does not have to be that long, like the second half of the Netherlands vs Senegal match, because of the number of times the game was interrupted to take care of the injuries of the players. not so many players.
Legendary referee Pierluigi Collina, Chairman of the FIFA referee committee explained this issue to Vn88 mobile: “What we did in Russia 2018 was to calculate more accurately the time offset. We’ve told people not to be surprised if they see the fourth umpire hold up the electronic board with a big number on it: 6, 7 or 8 minutes.
If we want more time on the ball, we need to be ready for the extra minutes. Think of a match where three goals were scored. A celebration usually lasts 1, 1 and a half minutes, so with 3 goals scored, the game has already taken 5 or 6 minutes.
What Vn88cx wants to do is accurately calculate the additional time at the end of each round. May be the fourth referee does it, we succeeded in Russia and we expect the same in Qatar. I am not talking about VAR intervention, this is different and has been calculated very precisely by the Video Assistant Referee.
Even when I was the referee, the information about the extra time came from the fourth referee. But then, you’re too focused on what’s going on to see it. The table referee usually recommends extra time and the referee will decide.”
Once a TV editor, runner-up Tu Anh said she was used to the exciting atmosphere on set every World Cup season. Although not an editor of sports programs, Tu Anh himself has a passion for football and regularly watches World Cup matches.
In this season, Vn88 put their faith in their favorite team, also the defending champion of the 2018 World Cup – France. The beauty shared her hope that France will continue to maintain its form and will go deep at this year’s tournament.
Sharing her opinion on the match result between France and Australia, Tu Anh said that although she loves France, she thinks they will face many difficulties in tomorrow’s match. “France’s squad for this year’s World Cup is not really impressive. However, Tu Anh still predicts a 1-0 victory for France.
As Vn88.cx reported, last night’s victory over Iran was more meaningful. Firstly, Iran is experienced at the World Cup. This is the team with the highest ranking in Asia on the FIFA rankings (20), while Panama only met England in the first time they attended a World Cup. Therefore, Panama’s position in Russia 2018 is much more modest than Iran’s in Qatar 2022.
The second is the crushing of Iran that has created a lot of remarkable lipstick marks for England members. The first is Jude Bellingham. With a header to open the home team’s sublime show, he became the second youngest English player to score at the World Cup, only behind Michael Owen (18 years and 190 days).
At the time of scoring, Bellingham was only 19 years and 145 days old. Bellingham is also the first player born since 2000 to score a goal at the World Cup. Even against Iran, Bellingham correctly completed 100% of the passes.
