    Correct me if I'm wrong but I always thought the ball had to be out of play before a substitution can be made. I just saw tunisia take off their keeper while he had the ball in his hands. The new keeper came on and took the ball in his hands

    Yep the ref basically allowed them to make the sub without the ball going out as he was about to blow for full-time. The refereeing at this tournament has been an absolute shambles so nothing surprises me now. A player got booked the other day for wearing his wedding ring :laugh:

    You are not allowed to wear jewelry but usually the ref just asks them to take it off

    Yeah, but it's just not a bookable offence and there isn't anything in the laws to allow the referee to do that.

    Exactly. To book him was ridiculous, especially given some of the leg-breaking challenges that have been completely ignored :laugh:

    They will play either Tunisia or Madagascar. If they get past though them, they play against Nigeria...

    Madagascar have never qualified for the tournament before so they're doing very well. Senegal lost the final 11-10 on penalties in 2002. It would be nice if anyone apart from Nigeria or Ivory Coast won it, but it is definitely about time that Senegal did the business.

    I have a degree in it, so should know.

    Do you think it would be successful adding £1? It didn't work on Suarez.

    Think it all but guarantees the transfer TBH.

    No way we can turn that sort of extra money down.

    Senegal v Algeria final.

    Marhez scored a last minute free kick to win the game for the latter

    Mane will probably make his debut next season in September after this long tournament. He made it so far, so he should win!

    Algeria deserve to win it based on what I've seen so far.

    The games yesterday got me worried about VAR again too. The penalties awarded and overturned in the two semis were both questionable to me.

    I actually think the ref got it right with both decisions. Both were accidental handballs but the first was blocking an attempt on target so it was a penalty and the second that was overturned was headed back and away from goal when it hit his hand. I think that should be the way decisions are always judged
