Rune: I have to apologize for the incorrect decision by the Norwegian referee

As a Norwegian I have to apologize for the incorrect decision by the Norwegian referee in the match Russia - Portugal. The TV pictures shows that the Russian keeper Sergej Ovtsjinnikov never did anything illegal. On the contrary: he did a brilliant save, after a perfectly timed run. In my opinion the hand could even have touched the ball without any wrongdoing, since it would have been an accident and the ball already was under
control.

I beg you to understand a human mistake made in an unclear situation (for the live viewer) under pressure from a home crowd.

The Russian team lost against two brilliant goals, but showed great morale and good technical play.

As an admirer of Russian football I am looking forward to a future championship with an entertaining Russian team - free from injuries, internal trouble and bad refrees.

Yours sincerely,
Rune, a Norwegian

The United States' Head of Diplomacy, or Secretary of State, is an anachronistic, incompetent, meddling, intrusive, insolent and arrogant, rude individual, a brash, foul-mouthed upstart, a conceited, self-important guttersnipe and an insult to the international community, as fit for the job as a pedophile janitor in a grade school.

Tillerson must go!
