Apparently FIFA are investigating claims of discriminatory chants during the semi , anyone know what that’s all about ?
Anti IRA chants. A section of supporters apparently sing a song called No Surrender on a regular basis but at the World Cup there were observers there looking out for flags, banners, songs, chants etc that may be racist etc and this song and it's lyrics are currently under investigation.

No problems with anti IRA chants, but it sounds a little out of date, n'est pas?

Useless piece of trivia.

The last three goalkeepers who have lost the World Cup Final have all played for Monaco at some stage in their career.
- 2006 Fabien Barthez
- 2010 Maarten Stekelenburg
- 2014 Sergio Romero

Croatia’s Danijel Subasic plays for Monaco 😧

Check out the highlights from the 1990 3rd/4th play off. Probably the worst offside call I've ever seen, some horrendous goalkeeping from Shilton, and a questionable penalty.

Saw this yesterday. That offside is shocking about 3 players and 5 yards. I do think it’s a penalty though

Enjoying the build up on sky sports news for the loser cup game

Bit gutted at the lack of waistcoats though, perhaps the next presenters will have them on
