We Timed Every Game. World Cup Stoppage Time Is Wildly Inaccurate. ...

The second half of Iran and Morocco’s tightly contested group match contained nothing too out of the ordinary by World Cup standards. Each side used all three substitutes; there was only one booking; no goals were scored. In a group with Spain and Portugal, both teams presumably were eager to steal a crucial three points and break the 0-0 tie.

It should have read 14 minutes.....

Soccer games should last 60 minutes and to eliminate useless timewasting there should be a stopwatch like in basketball.
