          Whoever praised Ally McCoist-I agree. He's enjoys himself in a way that's infectious

              Just turned this on. Why are Germany wearing white shorts? Is that FIFA directive, or whatever it was, about wearing all light or dark kits still a thing? If so, why, and what's the point? As for the France kit, why are Nike still allowed to 'design' team kits?

                Germany should really be down to nine men at this stage. What Kimmich did in the first half was absolutely a straight red

                What do people see in rabiot?

                  The question would be how one determines qualification. Birthplace, State of first playing licence, something else?

                  If we are going for single administrative regions, the Ile de France is currently likely to win this going away.

                    not for the first time on OTF, I have the sense that TAB is watching a different game from everyone else

                        What would be the reason for this? Are there any people left in the world watching on black and white TVs?

                        I know it's not massive in the grand scheme of things, but it is really diluting things for me. I don't want Germany looking like Real Madrid and I don't want Sweden looking like Ukraine. Even if the majority of people watching don't care about shorts or socks, I refuse to believe that there are fans who think 'Oh good, Germany are in white shorts now. That looks better.'

                                Both teams look a bit knackered, it's flat champagne football.

                                Bring Werner on for some light relief.

                                    That looked like quite a thump on Pavane. I'm surprised he got up and carried on considering how he went facedown into the turf.

                                      I suppose they'd claim a lot of people are watching on phones. Where a solid colour is easy to discern than multiple colours.

                                        French player almost decapitated by over-zealous German opponent.

                                        This fixture’s really changed over the years.

                                          It looked almost as if the French players were trying to help him through a quick concussion check there. “Think, think, we arrived here on Friday, two days on the golf course and one day training. Add them up, what would that make it now? C’mon man.”

                                            There's black in the shorts, is that not enough?

                                              Agree with you both, though I assumed that Sweden (who appear to have adopted a rather darker shade of blue than usual) had changed to their second choice shorts to avoid a clash with Spain's blue shorts.

                                                I'm glad the referee didn't think flying in, knees at the head, was dangerous. He got the ball, therefore literally everything else is acceptable.

                                                  Neuer untroubled by yesterday's events as he crossed the halfway line to make a pass.
