We were robbed!

Which pretty much spoils it already, but for those who want specifics, the score was Italy 1, Australia nil, with Italy scoring thanks to a penalty awarded in the last ten seconds of extra time. An Italian made a shot for goal, an Australian dived well in front of him with the intention to intercept the shot after it'd left the Italian, and the Italian tripped over the aussie after he'd played the ball. Next thing you know Italy is awarded a penalty, they score off it, and it's all over.

Totally robbed. Then again, the red on Materazzi was equally crap.

Shame, I don't know when you guys will have another such generation, with 4 legitimate big-team lineup guys.

Horrible officiating, second game in a row. Sepp really should go. This is insufferable.

Rallan i couldnt agree more, i was fanning australia all the way in this game, i wanted to cry when the ref pointed to the penalty.

what passes trough a person's head? doesnt he know that 10 seconds before the game ends you need to be VERY POSITIVLY ABSOLUTLY SURE that there was a penalty?

its a scandal, and its the second time in a row that the aussies are the ones who suffer from it.

as for yesterdays match between holland and portugal... if you ask me the ref should have drawn more red cards instead of less, it was more like a brawl then a game, and its a shame that two great teams played that bad

Anyone know where I can get a video of that Holland-Portugal game? I missed all but a few minutes of it.

Another blown call leads to a win in the Spain/France game. Henrey did a good job of flopping, but really, the ref just blew it.

Still, gotta respect France for staying with a hot Spain team the whole time, especially given how poorly they played in their pool games.
