And now the official stoppage times: In the opening game between Qatar and Ecuador there was a total of ten extra minutes, five in the first half and five in the second half. For Senegal – Netherlands: Ten minutes (2+8). For USA – Wales: 13 minutes (4+9). England-Iran: 24 minutes (14+10), although in this game the Iranian goalkeeper had to be treated for a long time for a head injury, as did the Saudi centre-back in his team’s game against Argentina, where actually 19 minutes (5+14) more were played than the usual 90 in football.
