Kicking Off

Does anybody else think it daft that FIFA insist that the final group games in tournaments such as yesterday's Confederation Cup are played at the same time, even down to synchronising the first-half kick-offs, when they then go and let the second-halves kick off 5 minutes apart? If it had been Brazil-Italy that had been delayed they could easily have fudged a result between them but, somewhat fortunately, it was US v Egypt and both had to go for it.
