    People seem to be focusing on the first challenge where there was absolutely no contact, but not the collision of the hips with the second player.
    Weak call but definitely not nothing.
    Mehle didn't even touch Sterling's leg and he lunged like he hit a metal bar with both his shins. Jensen's hip barely grazed Sterling's while he was already falling and it wasn't intentional. This is the definition of a dive.

    Actually, looking closer at Sterling's behaviour, it seems like he already made up his mind to go to the ground BEFORE Mehle's leg was anywhere close to him...

    I didn't see all you people complaining when Denmark scored in their last game from a corner which wasn't even a corner. Why wasn't this thread filled with complaints then?

    Is it just because people wanna see England get knocked out and especially since it was Sterling who have a tendency to go down easily?

    Seems like so much hypocricy here.

    It's sterling.... he would start going to ground if a blade of grass made contact with him.

    Better to be lucky than good, but we won’t be beating Italy.

    Its been proven time and time again that it was a corner.

    Does it hurt so much that you cant do anything without zlatan?

    Well, there were some lovely hot takes in this thread, most around the 30th minute.

    See you all for the final folks, it's coming home

    The only thing there is that the slow mow gives the impression that the English player starts falling before Mæhle's interception, leading one to think he capitalized on the light hip contact first.

    I think England is gonna beat Italy. England deserved to win this match it just sucks they had to win it the way they did.

    By far the better team and deserved to win, but from a "penalty" like that is a disgrace. VAR is supposed to rule out cheating play and allow a full insight into challenges and decisions, not encourage diving... Disappointed with the refs big time.

    On what basis? Italy are a stronger team, we just struggled so hard against a Danish team that literally ran out of players.

    My own take is that Denmark would beat italy aswell.

    I think italy is highly overrated.

    Also this is coming from a Dane so take it with a grain of salt but. Thats my take

    that ref needs to be investigated for corruption and bribery, cos come of those decisions were utterly shocking, he gave 1 danish player a yellow card for a foul that was so obvious to be a yellow card he couldn't not give it, and dozens of other fouls that could and should have been bookings but he waved them away, and that yellow card for harry maguire was a joke, he jumped and challenged for the ball and won the ball fairly, but i need to keep reminding myself that this is now a non contact sport, it's not like it was when i was younger, overall a very poor performance from both teams when it comes to discipline and overall sportsmanship.

    When in doubt, St. Referee will gift a penalty. As seen here. The entire tournament, is heavily rigged in England's favor already by the locations, and Corona regulations.
