    They played a great first half, but still sad to see such a shameless team win.

    I don't care who's the player, this shit should be punishable. We have VAR to catch these things.

    What a game. Right result I think, Belgium just lack depth.

    Feel bad for Spinazzola, he was outstanding.

    Belgium really should have converted those 2 horribly missed chances. Either way, was an enjoyable game

    Nah, they only kicked the ball to the other side of the pitch four times.

    Watching Lukaku miss two sitters gave me flashbacks to his time at United.

    Deserved for Italy. But their last 20 minutes were disgusting, really bad sportsmanship.

    This is pretty much why I dont take football any seriously any longer and became a NBA/NFL/NHL viewer the past two decades. The goddamn clock stops when there is no game going.

    As you said, fucking disgraceful.

    By acting injured and then suddenly getting up when they scored?

    Totally deserved by the Italians. Just a better team overall. The Belgians weren't able to break them down and that's what happens if you play a proper team. Not everyone is like France, throwing away a 2 goals lead.

    Falling over in the box when a defender comes near you. All the same gamesmanship.

    End of the day, Italy scored two fair goals, Belgium couldn't manage with a free shot.

    Not sure exactly what your point is.

    So you want tough play to be carded but not kicking the ball away when it's in the rules? Double standards much? And you talk about logic.

    Italy losing Spinnazzola for the rest of the tournament is huge though.

    That was heartbreaking to watch. And everyone booing him too.

    Immobile lay there acting injured until Italy scored, and was miraculously healed all of a sudden. Watch the video WarbringerPT posted. Are you seriously defending that kind of behavior?

    Also no where did I defend Belgium getting a penalty, it was very light at the most. From one angle it looked like Doku tripped over his own feet, from another angle it looked like he was pushed. I'm not the referee or VAR though.

    If getting pushed causes that sort of injuring (or rather, acting) then deary me he must be made of glass

    I agree the booing was disgusting.

    Belgium will look back at the last 10 years and wonder how they never won anything, such an amazing group of players, and only about 1/2 of them will be at the world cup.
    Italy look set to be the new force in world football.
