    ..so AUS vs NOR they played an hour and a half with only 2 goals-- game tied
    now they are playing 30 more minutes game still tied
    !!!!!
    this is STUPID
    why don't they play ANOTHER 90 minutes??!!
    they should do like NHL and take 2 or 3 players off each team for OT

    I don't follow soccer, but I seem to recall a penalty kick off to resolve ties.

    ....I thought sometime ago the France-Germany final was the same --90 minutes with only 2 goals--then no scoring in OT
    ....they need to make the scoring easier
    ...no scoring/not much scoring--etc etc etc ===???

    They should take the goalies off the field and play best of 3 scores. First team to get 2 points wins.

    I believe it would have something to do with endurance. In high level soccer, you’re allowed 3 substitutes; that’s it. Usually, one is reserved by smart coaches for injuries because if you’ve subbed 3 times and then you have an injury…you play with 10 players.

    Usually (not sure about WWC) there are two 30 minute periods followed by PK’s if memory serves.

    The idea of taking 2 or 3 players off is, well, dumb.
