ref's won it for them shoulda been over time different out come i think

Congrats to the USA who played a heck of a game. Also I’d like an honourable mention to the refs and timekeepers who gave the USA the ball twice in the final moments and holding the clock to allow the USA to win this final. The best team lost the game. #homefieldadvantage

Fantastic game. It was like watching two heavyweights trade bombs. Horrible that it was decided on a bogus offside call. 2022 is going to be war.

Team US has put in a tremendous effort and hard work over the tournament. They are deservedly champions. They themselves surely would have preferred to win the final game based on their athletic merits rather than the actual unfortunate circumstances.

This was a great game hats off to both teams🇨🇦🇺🇸For a final game you couldn’t ask for anything better other than reffing to be at same level as the players. Having so much on the line both financially and commitment to the game and nation; if Lacrosse truly wants to grow the game it has to ensure reffing and support services operate with the same professionalism as the players. Does that mean more international play is needed to develop the game in all aspects or super series Of some sort to give both officials and players alike further opportunity to perform at this level? I would say yes.

Congratulations Team USA! International Lax needs to adopt a shot clock, this version is too slow! I do love the driving into the crease is allowed!

Congrats team USA And being a miser, I certainly can’t wait for a trolling argument on this platform regarding these athletes standing for the anthem ...

Maybe two cbo officials so they can help count the on side players . This is not a complaint but the cbo got a crucial off side wrong with just 3 mins to go . Canada one up lose the ball and the rest is history . Both teams were fantastic and the game was excellent but I left feeling hollow .

Jacqueline Le are you here in Israel ?

Love it! Congrats Team USA Was an awesome game to watch. Well worth getting up for 🇺🇸

Congratulations 🎊🎉🍾

What FIL has to improve for next Wold Championships: - shot clock or possession clock is necessary. Like in Basketball. Boring to watch a team having the ball for five minutes. - Ridiculus schedule where a team like Argentina that defeated both Hungary and the Czech Republic, ended up bellow them. - Full of American players in many teams. That's not fair and it doesn't help to grow the game since they play and let other people outside the roster. - There were no fans on the matches/games. If you want to grow the game, give free tickets to the people of Netanya and to the players of other teams to fill the stadiums. The local people won't pay for a sport they don't know. Besides, it is depressing to see empty stadiums. That doesn't happen in other sports World Cups. - The FIL website is really bad. Not enough statitics (you don't know who are the top scoresrs of the tournament, the player with most assists, etc . Come on, this is basic. I had to look at wikipedia to see the brackets and know which country was going to play against and to imagine the possible future rivalries.
