I walked down to the pub to eat dinner and watch this game. Croatia seemed to have good momentum going and that PK all but sealed it. Was a total bs call. I also believe the no-goal call was bs too, when they said he interfered with the goalie. I feel they were both going for the ball and the Croatian player was in no was intentionally trying to make contact with the goalie. Just a poorly reffed game.

Thanks, Asian mafia!

(I just read a report on how badly gangs from Asia work to influence major soccer results. Apparently the gambling market in Asia is worth hundreds of billions a year.)

Yeah, that call was terrible. It wasn't the worst flop I've seen, it was partially him leaning against the defender and the defender moving so he lost balance. It just never ceases to amaze me that the referees can't tell the difference. I'd much rather see a foul go unpunished than give away penalties that shouldn't be given.

As for punishment for diving, I'd like to see more yellows given too but that call wasn't one I'd give a card for. There was contact, as little of it as there was. A simple no call for me and I'm a guy who'd like to see guys suspended for flopping.

Now that was the game that should have led off the tournament. Great game by Mexico and Cameroon.

How'd you like that first disallowed goal? Good match indeed, ready for Spain and Netherlands!

another horrible call for a PK! Use technology boys and allow coach challenges with instant replay.

To be honest, I didn't see the first half hour or so. I went back and watched the highlights and the second disallowed goal was bad. The first was really close when you freeze it and look at it and the 2nd, unless that one Mexican player touched it which I don't think he did, he can't be offside on a corner if he's the first on his team to touch it. So that one was a little mind boggling unless the official thought the first Mexican touched it before Dos Santos.
