    Very soft penalty indeed. Not sure what the defender could've done too differently in that situation.

    Syria's deadball taker was dangerous. Seemed to whip a decent ball in most times. Could sense an equaliser coming even tho it was a very soft decision to get one.

    I wouldn't blame the defender, it was a poor read from the ref

    Yeah that was the point I was making. Defender literally did nothing wrong and the whistle was so quick to come. Ref seemed to be hoping for something/anything to happen to give the penalty.

    Thank f**k but long way to go.

    Honestly Rogic is the only decent player we have these days.

    So the Syrian tactic of going to ground every time you're beaten is paying off handsomely at this point.

    Even if we somehow get to Russia, I don't see us being anything other than cannon fodder. What's Gus Hiddinck doing these days ?
