Yeah, this game definitely is boring.. especially after the Chile vs Brasil game. That game definitely looked like the game deciding who was going to be the World Cup champion this year.

How does that goal not get stopped? That's really bad...

I don't see Greece coming back anymore.

I have to praise the Greek counter-attacks, as they are extremely fast and skillful, but that lacklustre attitude in long attacks is depressing. Often 6 men are not even interested in attacking. Maybe the left back joins up a bit once every 20 minutes.

Well, Greece have to change their style now. Way to go Costa Rica!

And a penalty... not given!

He has really stepped up as the leader of this team and I wish people would give him more credit for that instead of always looking for reasons to criticize him.
Well, there were 1 one or 2 instances of dives in the first half when he wasn't even touched and completely dived. For the record I think that the foul on robben short before half time was a clear penalty. But I think the penalty a then end was a 50/50 situation. A referee can give the penalty but he dosn't have to. He was slightly touched and his theatrics didn't justify the slight touch at all. I just think with he quality Robben has he doesn't need these theatrics. I think he is a likeable guy in interviews even (his german sounds so funny with his dutch accent :-)).

I haven't noticed too many horrible calls like the blatant calls in 2010, but come on.. that's pathetic.

The only people who can stand behind that call is someone from Holland or someone who hates Mexico.

3 minutes to go, let them play.

Well, I think the penalty was a 50/50 situation. Robben was slightly touched, but it didn't justify his theatrics.

But something we can agree on is the terrible refereeing at this WC. An absolute disgrace.

When are they ever good?

You'd think with the Billions of dollars that FIFA has, that they could get a system that would allow decent refs and not so many blown games.

If there's a situation that can maybe go 50/50, you do not make the call and decide a game of such importance on a penalty kick.

That call should not have been made.


On another note, these Greeks and Costa Ricans are really annoying me. They are not even getting touched and just laying on the ground... get up.

Both of these teams are gonna get their butts kicked by Holland.
