    Just a quick reply , in defence of any apparent hesitation in this instance, what is worth pointing out is that
    we are watching one game and are not aware at the time a goal has been scored in another game
    unless we get a split screen showing the goals,as far as I am aware at the top of the game in the
    introduction the expanation given was correct as to what was needed to ensure qualifacation.

    Without getting hold of the entire game to go through word for word I can’t confirm what Leroy said,
    but he was aware of the needs of each team.

    With regard to the goal at the end of the game , the keeper came and made a bit of a mess of it to say the least, what followed was that no-one knew if the referee had finished the game ,it was not apparent
    to anyone either on the pitch or in the studio,as to something significant happening until you have the final score from the other game involving Angola which we were about to get ,to confirm a qualifacation or exit
    is not a good idea

    Be happy to talk further on this if you want feel free to get in touch for a chat

    It was though a great day for Sudan shame they didn’t follow itn up with a better performance in the 1/4 final
