Fans should be prepared for longer downtimes at the World Cup. As FIFA chief referee Pierluigi Collina explained, the times not played will be meticulously compensated.


Eight goals were scored in England’s 6-2 win over Iran at the start of the World Cup, the last of which came in the 13th minute of extra time. As a matter of fact, in the second match of the World Cup in Qatar, an additional 24 minutes was officially shown, 14 after the first half and 10 after the second half, and then this time was exceeded again.

WM: Seven or eight minutes of downtime will be normal

As the referee chief Pierluigi Collina of the world football federation FIFA explained before the tournament, fans should be prepared for this in this tournament.

We will calculate the additional time very carefully and try to make up for the time lost due to the events.

Pierluigi Collina, FIFA Chief Referee

We don’t want just 42 or 43 minutes of active play in a half, which is not acceptable.” Time lost due to goal celebrations, substitutions, injuries or ejections must always be made up. In a regular World Cup game in Qatar, “seven, eight” , nine-minute downtime” is expected.

Few cuts against Iran in the UK

In the match between England and Iran, this rough measure was surpassed even after both halves – but also because of the very eventful play.

Alongside the eight goals, injured Iran national goalkeeper Ali Beiranvand was given a longer treatment break and a decision was made based on video evidence, where referee Raphael Claus replayed a scene himself.
