    Spain with an impressive beat down of Costa Rica 7-0. Subs for Spain still head and shoulders above CR.

    For those in the know: why does it seem that such a large pct of penalties are also yellow cards…. it is my understanding that any foul if in the penalty box, is a penalty kick. the foul isnt in and of itself more egregious than other fouls.

    Also even odder i saw one awarded after a review, no call initially made, but after review a penalty kick awarded and a yellow card given. struck me as odd, that if ref didnt even initially have a foul at all, that the foul upon review could rise to the level of a yellow card.

    granted im sure some fouls are let go if in the box, by human nature, so that could drive the pct, but still

    Fouls in the box are booked yellow or straight red, depending on circumstances. A take down from behind in a breakaway in the box with only the keeper to beat will usually be straight red. Trips, shoves, handling the ball all in the box tend to be yellow unless the offender is already booked with a yellow, where they receive a yellow/red ejection. Infractions in the box tend to stop scoring opportunities while a midfield foul tends to be a warning unless multiple warnings have been given a player, or a player comes in cleats up or such. Outside the box is usually possession movement of the ball.

    If video review, like in the current Belgium/Canada game, shows a foul, like handling the ball (handball) in this case, the call is made after the review and the offender got a yellow card. Same would apply for any possible missed foul in the box. Keeper stoned the PK attempt.

    Futbol is no different than any sport. You hope for equal officiating, either tight or let ‘em play. Just be level with the calls.

    Think of it like American football and scoring, targeting and turnover reviews.

    Japan took down Germany for the shocker of the day.

    Thank you!

    Can the reviews go either way? Ive seen no calls reviewed to award the penalty, but can a penalty award be reviewed and reversed?

    Yes, calls can be reversed. The most common is VR overrules a goal scored due to an attacker was offside at the moment the ball was addressed (sender’s moment of contact). One of the hardest calls in all sports because everyone follows the ball. Some offside calls are truly razor thin. Here’s the VRs so far in this WC.

    That Ronaldo PK was a ref gift. I feel bad for Ghana. They were hosed.

    That was VR reviewed and blessed. I thought Ghana played great, they often compressed their “shape” to 20 or so yards making Portugal really work.

    Then the VAR ref has as much to answer for. That was way too soft. It was awarded only because it was Ronaldo IMO.

    Not all fouls in the box are carded. Zimmerman wasn't booked for his foul on Bale. Midfield fouls are often yellow if it deliberately slows an attack, like Ream's yellow, or is reckless like the early ones on the US. Although I thought a couple of those were soft.
