To me there was intentionality and so it is definately a right penalty. And keep in mind that the referee has been too cruel to give red card to materazzi...in most of europan championship that would have been yellow card in the worst case...
But it had been a very balanced game, between aussie's attack and italian defence...
If the penalty had been awarded to australia, wouldn't you have been as sick as the proverbial parrott, to lose to such a ridiculous decision?

The Italian guy could easily have chosen to dodge the defender lying on the pitch and continue the play. Instead he chose to run into him.

I can't really blame him too much though. The rules of soccer, especially as enforced by these referees, encourage this sort of play.
And that's exactly why football/soccer will never catch on in North America - too many dives, theatre, and the refs decide a lot of the games...too bad though

I wouldn't be surprised if all these soccer referees were actually Dick Bavetta. Or maybe Bennett Salvatore.

Hiddink said: "You can have doubts about the penalty, it was questionable."

Doesn't sound like the words of someone unequivocally convinced his team was "robbed"...

again, the team that DIDN'T DESERVED to pass... passed...



and those teams are: Portugal, England, Italy...


WE TOO were robbed in France 98, with a false penalty that got them to tie with us... WE WERE WINNING... and then a "penalty" like at the 40 minutes of the 2nd time...

I HATE ITALY!!! (and Brasil too)

Hiddink doesn't care, he's already off to his next job.

Why? They scored, and their opponents did not.

Here's SI.Com poll results so far:
Quote:
Was Italy's Fabio Grosso fouled by Australia's Lucas Neill?

Yes, he clearly tripped him 18%
No way. The Aussies were robbed 61%
Could have gone either way 21%

^^ Bad referees seem to be constant in this championship... I hope this gets better for the sake of the sport magic.
