Only saw a quick glimpse of it on SSN, but didn't the Brazilian defender head the ball and score an own goal without the Aussie forward challenging for the ball or touching it? If so, then I'm not sure how there is any confusion over whether its offside or not. I need a proper look at it tbh.

What channels are showing these games? Are all the games not being televised?

BBC One, BBC Two, BBC Four or BBC Red Button for each game.

Red Button is Sky 981 if you wanna just watch it on a telly channel.

The issue was that the Aussie striker was clearly offside when the ball came in but the Brazilian defender couldn't have known that. She just knew the striker was behind her, so naturally she jumped to win the header but glanced it past her own keeper. Even though the striker didn't challenge or touch it, it was her presence that forced the defender to play the ball in the first place. By the letter of the law the striker was offside when the ball was played. But also by the letter of the law it went in off the opponent so can't be offside. I think that's the upshot of it all. Yet again VAR did nothing but cause a five minute delay, after which the debate continues. It's farcical.

For me VAR is sucking the joy out of football.

Poor old Scotland 2-0 down already. I can see them getting a spanking here.

Turned it off. Weren't too bad early on but as soon as Japan scored Scotland have gone to pieces.

I suppose I'll have to do some bloody work, instead. 🙁

Scotland have come into during the last ten minutes or so.  Started to outmuscle the Japanese. Scots have just hit the post but should have scored.

Scotland denied a clear penalty for handball.  VAR, why?

If they can beat Argentina they could still get through. Can see them winning and missing out on being one of the best third place teams on goal difference.

Another interesting VAR decision in the first 10 minutes of the Italy - Jamaica game. Penalty denied by ref, corrected by VAR. Penalty saved by the Jamaican goalie, but then ordered to be retaken as she had strayed maybe 50 cm off her line before the kick was taken. If this is how penalties are going to be now, then every single one everywhere is going to have to be retaken, perhaps multiple times, as goalies routinely charge well off their line. Be interesting to see if they'll punish the "big boys" with this one in the CL / PL etc..., or whether they bottle it.

Not at all sure that was a penalty. It looked a perfectly clean tackle on the TV replay - I presume VAR provided the ref with another angle that we didn't see.
