The linesman (sorry, assistant referee) gave the call... and he is Danish.

So it should be bloody Danish assistant referee.

And as for Denilson... does he not know what a pass is?!

you are right. Graham Pool was pro-Italian when you look at fouls, free kicks and such. He was obviously biased towards Italy.
Danish lines-man, on the other hand had some, as it seems , sympathi for Croatia taday...

You still should be worried about the second round for Mexico!!!
It's still not over - Croatia will beat Equador, and in that case Mexico has to win or draw against Italy which is hard.
If Italy beats Mexico by two goal difference or/and if Croatia beats Equador with 2 goal difference than Mexico is out...

Ofcourse it would be the best for Mexico to beat Italy! That way Croatia can draw with Equador and still go to the second round

Congrats Mexico & raf, I really wanted both Italy and Mexico to go through, though this doesnt seem the most likely option anymore.
I have nothing against Croatia, but they should NOT have won that match, Italy scored 2 perfectly good goals that were disallowed, so if they dont go through I will have very little confidence in the prospect of this being a fair world cup.
Most of the big upsets so far in this World Cup I think have been because of poor performances from the big teams, but this time, I think its obvious the officials were at fault. Generally apart from this the refereeing has been quite good, although kind of inconsistent in the sendings off, and with diving, sometimes they are rewarded with a yellow card and sometimes a free kick, it seems ridiculous.
Have to turn my attentions from Italy to Ireland now and tomorrow's big matches. Saudi have basically said they are gonna shut up shop and getb 11 men behind the ball at all opportunities, so Ireland will have another job on their hands to break down another defence. Come on boys

You could be right, but as I see it we (that's Croatia) played better than Italy.
Graham Poll was puling and cheering for italy the whole time, fortunately the linesman had some sympathy for Croatia.
In the past Croatia was screwed up by referees too many times for me to care if we won only by ourselves or if some regular goal was dissalowed. That's football, and this is the FIRT TIME that this kind of refereeing goes Croatia's way. We were always "small country" and big nations always had the sympathy from the referees - so in a strange way this victory gives me musch more pleasure than it normaly would... No excuses, no apologies... at last a happy football day for me

Since no one's talking about the US team, I guess I'll start.

They were pretty darned lucky to salvage the 1-1 tie with South Korea--South Korea had a ridiculous 19-5 shot advantage or so. Brad Friedel was huge (literally--he's at least 6'4", or almost 2 metres in height) but South Korea had a lot of excellent chances to score.

I was somewhat amused by the fact that South Korea was playing more physically than the US (posting up, grabbing shirts, holding, etc). It didn't help them win too many balls in the air, though--Eddie Pope got most of those.

As strange as it sounds for a team that gives up 19 shots, I thought the US defenders were excellent (except for Jeff Agoos, who surrendered a penalty kick and let a guy slip behind him for a header and the tying goal).

The US forwards were working pretty hard, but usually either Brian McBride or Clint Mathis would have the ball deep in South Korea's field, and they wouldn't get any support.

The US midfield did very little in this game (although John O'Brien slipped Mathis a nice pass for the US goal). They did not maintain possession of the ball the way they swore they would.
