I think there's a typo at the beginning of your post when you say: "the final match in their group between Spain and Czech Republic had still one minute to go". It is Croatia instead of the Czech Republic, isn't it?
Thanks for you blog,


Thanks. Fixed.


Very interesting analysis. I've written something on the same subject, from a different point of view.


Antonio: Thanks for the link. You take the perspective of the average spectator and whether they expect a biscotto to be given while I take the perspective of the teams deciding whether to give a biscotto. It would be interesting to find out why the players decided not to do it.
