A few remarks...

the ref....I actually think he did quite well in an orgy of violence. He has to hand out all those cards when the players behave like that.

Holland...shameful lack of fair play, and their deliberate and succesful attempt at injuring C. Ronaldo will hardly be forgotten soon and was probably an important reason why things went the way they did.

Portugal....they were the better team, and deserved the win. Even with a nutcase among them. Figo's header? He shouldn't have done it, but he didn't really hit the Dutch guy. He fell down like a sissy.

Here's hoping Portugal will kick England's butt in the quarter finals.

Oh, they'll sell out stadiums on a regular basis. I think fans from other areas of the world will be less likely to travel to support their teams (because of the crime) but it's a huge sport in South Africa so the South Africans will certainly pitch up. Ticket sales will definitely be good.

By the way, does anyone know who that ref is? The one who was writing on his pad and handing all the cards out... (is he the ref ref, or the assistant ref)?
Uh - no. The 16 cards tied a record for the World Cup.
It was a Russian ref who should be canned.

btw - I think the ref got better in the 2nd half. But he was blind in the 1st half.

If ref had given first red card to a player who injured Ronaldo the game would have been different

Maybe, but according to Fifa regulations, the yellow card was correct....and you have to know that this tournament is all about fifa regulations (or did you really think it was about football??)

the assault at Ronaldo was a bad one and should have been a red card, but I can't believe Holland wil be th eteam who will be remembered for lack of fair play
you can argue whether Heitinga should have played the ball back to Portugal, you can't argue that Deco isn't judge, jury and exectionar and his disgraceful tackle was a red card
according to Van der Sar Portugal only tried to stall time and tried to get under our skin
I think he was a bit overemotianal and that it wasn't that bad, but he's not far off with this

overall I don't think Holland deserved to win this match
but the entire match turned out to be a big disgrace that didn't deserve any winner

I hope to go. One of my long-term (short-term?) ambitions is to have a good sporting day taking in rugby, cricket and World Cup football in South Africa.

I always considered Sven overrated coach.I really can't remember his big trophy aside scudetto with Lazio. Now you see i'm a big England fan and i think it'll be big battle between coaches.Sven with a better team (Ronaldo,Figo,Deco will be out) or big Fil with eleven world cup victories in a row.Sven lost two years ago, lost four years ago but i think will winn this time and it would have nothing with his coach abilities but simply with the fact that without Figo (who will be suspended), Deco and Ronaldo England is better.
