If I were Deco, I'd be seriously pissed off. Sent off for being pushed over!

I want England to play Germany. It's always a good game when that happens.

Netherlands - Portugal was more of a world war football 3 then a normal match... 13 yellow cards, and in the end they played 9vs9!

Am I right in thinking you can't appeal red cards in World Cup matches too?

This is shaping up to be a great tournament. Shame about the Dodgy penalty given to Italy. More FIFA intervention i think.

Marco Materazzi got a ridiculous red card, so the penalty was pretty deserved.

Not when its a match winning situation, it was so obviously not a penalty, and to give it when OZ have absolutly no chance to fight back is just plain bribery. As Dave said, its Italy, what do you expect.

Wtf leon, he is tackling with a 2-footer. it´s a clear red card.

I´m a ref (on another level though) and it´s all correct

I hate how everyone is complaining now about all the yellow and red cards. That Portugal match in particular. Every single yellow card was easily justifiable, with the exception of Deco's last one. Harsh, maybe, but it's the players' fault and no one elses.
