FIFA 2022: Why is extra time added in World Cup matches
With millions of people
watching Qatar 2022, many wonder why the FIFA World Cup games have added time
to the regular 90 minutes.
FIFA World Cup is without any
doubt the biggest sporting event. Apart from being the most anticipated tournament in
years for diehard soccer fans
As it happens with every World Cup
, many people who aren't familiar with the game suddenly take
interest in knowing the basics of soccer.
In FIFA World Cup games,
like in any soccer match, the added time helps to make up for the
minutes lost during a game
Whenever a team makes a
substitution, a player gets medical attention, or the
ball goes out of the field.
Though the game lasts 90
minutes, divided in to halves, that time is hardly played as the game
frequently needs to be paused
