The acting is a problem but unlike the NBA these guys are taking some real hits.
I didn't see any getting their eye gouged, but ok. My 2 year old trips and gets up faster than these guys.

I guess you missed the USA vs Brazil WC game. Eye wasn't gouged but split wide open.
They were metal cleats. Look at their socks (ankles). That isn't red paint they put on them.

Which makes the fake acting so much worse, feels like players have no respect for the game, when they fake injuries every time they trip. Being a pansy is one thing, faking an injury and acting is a whole different ball game.

That's why they have extended time.

sorry it's a.lot more than just unfortunate it completely invalidates this:
Another good game. Puts US sports to shame. So sad!!!
Just try to imagine this happening in an American sport.
game 7 warriors are up by 2 with a minute left. Oh look curry is hurt he's going to roll around on the floor for 45 seconds but don't worry we're going to add 15 seconds now Green's going to roll around on the floor for 10 of those extra 15 seconds, oh and he's going to throw the ball away from the Cavs when it's their ball (happened on the England Croatia game) oh sorry time ran out....
that's a great game??

Does not invalidate a great game. It is part of the game. Just like flops and taking five steps is part of the NBA game. I never hear in football "If the ref gave us 10 more seconds we would have won".

the flopping in soccer is almost strategy

one of the tie breakers they use is which team has less yellow and red cards so it affects the outcomes more than flopping in the NBA

Then it is a bad strategy. We would have a lot more yellow cards without the flopping.

True, and to keep going at full steam for the 90 or 120 minutes in this size of field is a killer.
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.
Pele Good,Maradona Better, George Best.
