Never understood kicking the ball out when opponent player is injured. Play on till there's a natural stoppage at which point the ref can blow the whistle

It's called sportsmanship and doesn't happen when the team is pushing forward.

You do it the same like when your teammate / opponent is laying there. That´s what I did and taught. If there´s somebody injured (like a broken bone), which almost never happens, pass the ball out. If there´s somebody (opponent!) screaming like hell, keep playing and let the ref stop the play (he has the right to blow a whistle), but tell kids to always pass it out when a kid screams/cries of course. If there´s someone with a leg cramp, keep playing, if it´s a close game and we want to score. If someone´s laying 50cm next to the sideline, he can hop outside, no matter if he has a cramp, why should I stop the match? If somebody´s injured or bleeding, okay. But the ref has the right to make a call and stop the play, it´s not my decision to pass the ball outside if some teams lay there 5+ times per game.

With all these Polish turnovers you would think Michael Bradley is out there.

New Can Fabianski take a penalty? He is doing everything else to keep Poland alive.
Of course he can, although it is rare you see a keeper shoot in the first five. It is more common to see a keeper shoot one when PK goes into the extra shots..

Switzerland participated in one Penalty Kicks:
2006 vs. Ukraine. Switzerland shot 0/3 and it ended 0-3. Ouch!
Please do not shot, Johan Djorou!

Bundesliga stats for Sommer:
10/12 scored, 2 missed the goal, 0 saved from him.
Random stats from the commentator...

Holy shit. That's the way to seal it.

edit: Aside from Xhaka's boneheaded PK, that was one of the more impressive shootouts I can remember.

only 15 in, but I think NIR has done a better job of positive possession in this battle of teams that don't possess.

That's a terrible job by the ref. Twellman is wrong, no indication of a head injury. Rewarded Wales for staying down after a bad defensive error.

I imagine it's a very difficult spot for a ref with a collision at that speed. It's quite possible to get concussed from that kind of impact without a head contact, as well.

I have more a problem that the rules don't give Northern Ireland a free kick from where they possessed the ball.

If you watch the replay there was no motion to holding the head of the injured players until they realized they weren't stopping play. One of the injured players baited the ref into it, and that sucks.
