The predictable curse of the high-altitude settings in La Paz again struck Argentina who (without the suspended Messi) fell to a 2-0 qualification defeat to Bolivia this evening with goals coming from Juan Carlos Arce & Marcelo Martins Moreno.. A serious blow to Argentina's play-off hopes..
Thrilled to see the Video Assistant Referee (#VAR ) being used on #Spain vs #France , righting two big wrongs. It’s a big step forward. France will complain about the VAR, while Spain will have a week of celebrating it, but hopefully the federations will rise above pettiness. Particularly expecting to have VARs in every big league and the main tournaments until 2020, will make the sport as fair as it possibly gets. Fairness not as in the best team wins, but actually to not have any kind of officiating mistake that taints great matches.
On a side note, #Barça pushing for it according to reports, Spanish FA not so much, we could end up having it everywhere but Spain (seriously).
