Got to disagree on that, it was a clear trip and the ref had no choice. Good game and Uraguay look like they could trouble a few sides.Flying_Monkey said:Well, that's ruined it. Cheap sending off. Referee was totally suckered by the striker there, as he's been doing all night. The standard of refereeing has been pretty good so far but that was a poor decision.
Debian said:a) The penalty decision was clearly and unambiguously correct - excellent decision!
The red card was debatable. Did the trip deny a clear goalscoring opportunity? The ball was moving away from goal but maybe, if he hadn't been tripped he would have got to it and turned it? Anyway, for a split second decision - probably correct.
