"The action of a deliberate hand to the ball will result in a penalty award".

That quote is from the rule book.

If you look at the slow mo playback it was not deliberate and the player had no opportunity to ensure his hand was clear. The ball clearly travelling at speed with an attacking player blocking the defender's view or line of sight could not see the ball.

Anyone but France to win the World Cup. :irked  Oh! and Argentina, Brazil, Germany, Italy.   :D

I wasn't going to watch the final , but I did. At the halftime interval the "experts "  - Gary Linekar , Alan Shearer , Rio Ferdinand and Jurgan Clinsman all agreed that the penalty awarded should never have been.
Well , I am / was gobsmacked. The ball clearly hit the guy's hand , and went behind for a corner . Otherwise , the ball would have crossed and probably been directed into the net . My point is that these guys must have been watching something completely different from me , or else they're so tied up in their own legends that they think they're infallible.
Anyway , doesn't matter as France won easily in the end.

FA says no partying at Birmingham International when the boys arrive back today please to the fans.  That's tantamount to saying bad job lads you don't deserve a pat on the back for doing better than anyone expected of you before the tournament started.  Miserable gits.

Eggwetter.  Even the carried over Djokovic/Nadal match went to 10-8 in the 5th set, which delayed the start of the grunters and squealers final.
