    The ref won't blow the whistle to kick-off until all players are in their own half. And the Croatian players were obviously still celebrating in England's half.

    No idea how the English players somehow thought they would get away with it. So strange... and yet kinda funny. :D Shows how desperate they must've been.

    Thats hilarious and ironic considering how they were laughing at Panama when they did it. Claiming, "they couldn't even score on that."

    All outfield players were off the pitch? Swear if they are all off the pitch then the other team is allowed to kick off.

    Thats why in some games we have seen where someone scores there is always one player that doesnt run off the pitch to celebrate with team mates.

    Interesting. If you look closely, you see one single Croatian by the corner where his teammates are, but he stays on the pitch. If what you said is true, I’m genuinely curious to know if he had the rule in mind.

    Read it from a newspaper and this is why I need to do proper checkups.

    The laws are clear," a FIFA spokesperson said.

    "Law eight says 'all players, except the player taking the kick-off, must be in their own half of the field of play,' at kick off.”

    Therefore, the referee clearly cannot and would not (from a fairness
    perspective) allow the kick off whilst players are off the field
    celebrating."

    "This is pure coincidence and must be a made-up interpretation of the Laws."

    This is basically it.
