Semi-automated offside seems to be working quite well. Didn't take long in the Turkey match either.

There was a luck factor to both goals, but if you let a team keep attacking you for so much of a match, this kind of thing can happen. Portugal win 2-1.

A decent game in the end.

That winner was a real gift by the defence.

Congratulations Türkiye! :clapping:

This 3-1 against Georgia is the biggest win in their Euros history alongside 2-0 against Belgium in 2000 and 2-0 against Czechia in 2016.

It's the first time that they start the Euros with a win, in their previous five participations they always started with a defeat (0-1 vs Croatia in 1996, 1-2 vs Italy in 2000, 0-2 vs Portugal in 2008, 0-1 vs Croatia in 2016, and 0-3 vs Italy in 2020)

They also scored as many goals yesterday against Georgia as in their previous six matches combined!

What do you mean? Offside is offside.

I agree with Tazmania, this is ridiculous. How do I know that the line used is indeed parallel to the goal line? How do I know that the moment they used to measure this was indeed the moment of the pass and not a little bit after or a little bit before?

Fortunately Türkiye won the match anyway, otherwise this would be much more controversial.

Third recovery in Euro 2024 from 0-1 to 2-1, after Italy vs Albania and Netherlands vs Poland.

And the hardest of them all, because when you have forwards like Ronaldo and Bernardo Silva, scoring one goal is miraculous!

This picture of Ronaldo's positioning before the kickoff speaks for itself! :sigh:
Image

He is worse than Gonçalo Ramos, yet he plays every minute, while Gonçalo Ramos didn't play a single minute.

He is worse than Diogo Jota, yet he starts while Diogo Jota doesn't, and then he even stole a goal from Diogo Jota because he was offside! He was Czechia's best defender!

He is worse than André Silva, yet André Silva isn't selected while he is here for the sixth edition playing his 26th (!!!) Euro match.

It's very difficult to win under these circumstances.


And then there is Bernardo Silva too. This was his fourteenth match for Portugal at a major tournament. He has ZERO GOALS AND ZERO ASSISTS!

And yet I'm sure that these two will be back in the starting XI against Türkiye! :sigh:


These two are so bad that Portugal's first scorer had to be Hranác! Portugal's best chance to score was kicking balls against the Czechs and let them do the rest!


And then the second goal was scored in the 92nd minute, a play by two players that entered few seconds before.

It was obvious that several players were tired, and yet, instead of using the substitutions sooner, Roberto Martínez only gave them a few seconds to solve the problem that others created for 90 minutes. Fortunately for him they were still able to do it.

Next time he may not be that lucky.

There are now multiple cameras which are able to map out the dimensions of the pitch (drawing actual straight lines parallel to the goal line), and locating the exact position of the ball and each player’s body with respect to the pitch. There is also a chip in the ball which is able to capture the exact time the ball is touched (if you watch Belgium’s handball disallowed goal you will know).

And in science, of course there is nothing that is exactly “exact”. There is always a “margin of error” that must be accepted when you are measuring things, no matter how scientifically advance your equipment is. So this VAR system already allows some “leeway” when making offsides calls or goal-line technology calls, it is just it is much more precise than what the human’s naked eye can tell from a camera frame.

This is going great already, who'd have thought Georgia might produce entertaining, high energy games?

Harsh penalty-kick decision (again) because there was no intention to handle the ball.

I've started watching at about 30' minute and there was foul after foul, or to be more precise - many nasty fouls committed by both teams. Georgia made some chaotic attacks and one of them ended with a handball in the box and penalty.

A Czech player from Georgia's area comically started a Georgia counterattack.
Chance missed and now Czech Republic equalized.
