Golden goal (1 Viewer)

I can't understand why FIFA replaced the normal extra-time with golden goal. I can't see any purposes with golden goal, it's less exciting, it's more unfair and it usually leads to more defensive play.
I get so frustrated when a team has completely played out their opponents and suddenly they concede a goal and it is all over. I think Sweden would have won the game against Senegal if it wasn't for the golden goal rule.
I would like to hear your opinions in this matter.

What are you talking about? :confused:
And what about that golden goal? When had they cancelled it?
somethign ridiculous where if the team scores, they still have to play out the whole first extra time period to give the other team a chance to equalise :dontcare:
