    I'm shocked we won this WC without even playing our best. I was never too confident about our playing but still we made it. It's a great day for us.

    I can't understand how 3 fucking referees can miss that this

    is a fucking red card.

    what I mean't was getting injured almost as soon as he stepped on the field after the goal happend when he was chasing down a long ball. It wasn't his knee this time it seemed like it was his hamstring.

    He was offside on the cross, but the pass fell well short and the Netherlands retook possession (sort of, falling down and having the ball bounce off of you isn't really taking possession, but that's the rules). When he fell down, the Netherlands player rolled towards the goal and brought Iniesta back onside. An incredibly lucky play that could have easily been flagged right away. My guess is the ref was looking at the other Spain player near the box (who was onside for the cross), since the ball was actually closer to him, even though it was intended for Iniesta.

    Some questionable officiating just like the rest of the tournament. I still can't believe Puyol got away with spinning Robben completely around on that break away.

    I just watched the replay today. Very exciting, although the Netherlands got a bunch of fouls called against them and a few of those didn't seem like fouls to me. Both of the keepers were outstanding, each side could have scored about 2 more goals if the keepers weren't so awesome.

    Congratulations Spain!

    Robben was just too quick for Poyul :lol: .. though he should have scored both of those where we was basically one on one with the keeper..
