Everybody is talking about Denmark who were quite good and we weren't. BUT that German so called ref and VAR (or total lack of it) threw the game their way unashamedly. As I posted earlier at 1-0 anything could have happened The German and those in charge of VAR made sure it didn't.
Was it all to do with Erikson? It smacked of some premier league big team little team officiating. If it was a sympathy vote for them they should be totally ashamed of themselves.
Not the first time Wales have been screwed in tournaments. Remember the Scotland playoff....colour blind ref gave a penalty when THEY handled the ball. Play off v Russia who fielded an ineligible. player (drug ban if I remember).........automatic 3-0 loss but UEFA changed the rules for that one. Then a few months later reinstated the rule for Scotland under 21's.
Corruption in sport is hardly new!
Thanks for the reply though it doesn't explain why 6 teams have the benefit of playing ALL of their group games at home.
Why couldn't any of the 6 be sent away for a game? Rome is only 1,700 miles from Baku, Wales is about 2,600 miles away. Fixed? for some of the big teams, bit like the premier league!
