Guess it would be nice to finish third...

 

There are sports in the Olympics where the fourth place team has to watch the third place team collect their Bronze medals.

 

I believe that third is worth fighting for.

 

:lol: I know you're a fantasist Scotty, but come on...

 

Denmark ( a nation of 5 million) didn't even qualify for Euro 1992, yet they beat Germany in the final.

 

Anything can happen.

 

Never say never.

Time to can the charade that is the 3rd/4th place playoff?


With a few quid on RVP and 3-0, I respectfully disagree!
Makes up for Muller 3-0 in the last Brazil game.

I don't believe football should be an Olympic sport. Let's leave the third place honours for the sports that belong in the Olympics.

I think both teams would've preferred to go home on Wednesday/Thursday and leave the stage set for the finalists instead of hanging about for a match that means little more than a friendly.

Just my view of course, although i do agree if the match really does have to be played you're as well to win it I suppose.

The point being that one team would get an award and the other wouldn't.

 

The fourth place team would have to watch the third place team collect their medals.

 

I didn't realise that the third place finishers would get medals right after the game today until I just saw it on the TV (so it's even better).

 

Oh, look... Adverts!

I'm watching CBC.

Apparently only Saudi Arabia and North Korea have conceded 12 or more since the tournament expanded to 32. And now Brazil! That's bonkers.

Yes.

 

Belgium had 15 past them in 1986. (24 teams.)

Don't understand the moaning about the 3rd place play off game - I love the World Cup, and it's another game of fitba to watch.
There's been a couple cracking games over the years.
And for losing semi finalists it offers a chance of redemption - not 'we lost at the semi final stages', but 'we finished 3rd at the World Cup'!
