Twitter reacts to FOX airing commercial during play in World Cup final

The first half of the World Cup Final on Sunday featured about as much action as possible, and some fans were furious that they were forced to miss a small portion of it due to a broadcasting error.

In the 40th minute of play between Croatia and France, Xfinity customers had their broadcast of the game cut out for a commercial. That’s not supposed to happen in the middle of a half during a soccer match, and fans went ballistic on Twitter:

France were leading 2-1 at the time. Their first goal came by way of an own goal, and the second was on a penalty kick that was awarded due to a handball in the box. Sandwiched between France’s two goals was a laser from Croatia to tie the score at 1-1, so you can understand why viewers didn’t want to miss any of the action.
