Croatia only scored their goal because no Czech player stopped them taking a quick freekick. Being able to block quickly taken freekicks without punishment is one of the biggest problems in football today. The rewarded team if they try and take a freekick through a “blocker” can even be booked on occasion.
Players blocking freekicks should be automatically given a yellow card, maybe fouling wouldn’t be an easy cynical way to stop attacks that they currently are.
Interesting game for us neutrals. England poor but if they score first it will be over although Scotland have done better than I thought. Expect to see Grealish on the hour who could provide the flair England are lacking.
